We recently acquired a collection of documents and images from W T G Henderson, a Scotsman, who was Oriental Expert for the auction house of Glendining & Co in London from the 1920s and onwards. The content is focused on Japanese art, but also includes Chinese art, as well as more diverse subject areas. Much of this work would have been used when producing auction catalogues of the time.
This item is from that collection (see other listings for additional offerings):
Chinese Porcelain before the Present Dynasty by S. W. Bushell, M.D. Physician to H B M Legatation, Peking.
Extract from the Journal of the Peking Oriental Society.
Published Pei-T'ang Press, Peking, 1886, 1st edition.
This 56pp booklet is very scarce. Cover is poor - taped spine and some tears to cover, general wear and annotation. Securely bound to text. Text is good overall with some pencil annotations.
Dimensions: 23.5cm high x 15cm wide x 5mm deep.
