Christies Pictorial History Chinese Ceramics
A copy of the book 'Christie's Pictorial History of Chinese Ceramics' by Anthony du Boulay. Hardback book in dust jacket. First edition 1984 published by Phaidon and Christie's. 319 pages with over 1400 pieces of Chinese ceramics shown, 250 in colour.
An excellent visual reference on Chinese ceramics spanning the range from early wares to Eighteenth Century export wares. Nearly all the items illustrated passed through Christie's salerooms, and therefore illustrate the range of Chinese ceramics available to collectors at the time. Of interest is an appendix listing the prices achieved for the illustrated pieces, and the sale date.
Condition. Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent condition.
