China's Dragon Robes
 Picture
Publisher: The Ronald Press Company, 1952 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED by author on front endpaper. "A scholarly survey of the dragon-patterned robes worn by nobles and officials in China during the later dynasties. Intended as a source book on a major phase of Chinese costume, it is based on translations from many Chinese sources and on the author's personal studies of existing examples of dragon robes in this country and in China. Although many dragon robes have found their way into Western museums, the little information concerning them which has appeared in exhibition catalogs and monographs has been largely devoted to describing the robes as examples of fine textile work. Dr. Cammann here considers the evolution of the robes, their further development in the Ch'ing Dynasty, their function in their own times, their symbolism, the techniques employed in making them, including weaving and dyeing, and their place in Far Eastern culture in general. The thoroughly documented and annotated text, supplemented by carefully chosen illustrations, offers museum curators, historians, and students of Oriental Art a basic discussion of an important, but hitherto neglected, chapter in China's cultural history." Illustrated with section of black-and-white photographic plates. vii + 230 pages with index. Book is in GOOD or better condition; foxing to first several pages. Dust jacket is in POOR condition; large chip missing from front panel (see photo).
