产品描述

The National Library of China, based in Beijing, is the world’s fifth-largest and posesses spectacular and unparalleled holdings including inscribed oracle bones, rubbings, manuscripts, maps, printed books, and artifacts from minority cultures. These items trace, in broad strokes, the evolution of the written and printed word in China, against the vivid backdrop of Chinese society and history. The sixty-eight exhibits here, all illustrated in full color, showcase an integral part of Chinese history as documentation and as works of art.

The book is divided into 4 main sections: “Rare Books and Manuscripts, ” “Epigraphical and Pictorial Rubbings, ” “Maps and Atlases, ” and “Texts and Illustrations from China’s Ethnic Minorities.”

The book includes about 180 color plates, full descriptive essays in Chinese and English for every object in the exhibition, notes and references pertaining to each work, and an extensive bibliography listing more than a century of monographs, articles, exhibition catalogues, and reference works related to the featured items.
