A nice edition of this classic text on Chinese Jade. An essential reference on the subject.
Outer card slipcase in near fine condition. Dustjacket is very good - nice and clean, price clipped, 2 x 1cm tears to top of dustjacket on rear, but no missing pieces. Book itself in near fine condition - only real flaw is the slight remains of a piece of tape on the first free endpaper (presumably the remains of an owner's bookplate or library plate). Outer cloth covers in fine condition and text pages immaculate.

Hardback, dustjacket, xviii + 193pp plus plates.
275mm high x 200mm wide x 40mm spine.
