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 Pottery Statue of a Lohan, printed by order of The Trustees of The British Museum.
Note: This is a first edition from 1920 and not a later reprint.
Good overall: Yellow card covers, with age discoloration. Text clean and bright throughout. Retains original yellow thread sewn binding.
Coloured frontis + 7pp text.
Dimensions: 266mm high x 210mm wide x 4mm deep.
