Huxley, Walter and Hess, Franz C., Editors; with Text By Chi Chen Wang  
Reproductions of Chinese Rubbings Taken from Inscriptions cut in Stone, Wood, and also from Bronzes, Monuments and other Bas-reliefs

Publisher: Huxley House New York 1938.
Number 78 of 500 copies. Housed in 10.5 x 14-inch navy blue portfolio. Turquoise paper wraps with gold silk cord stab binding. Most of the images are printed on letterpress: two fold-out prints done by offset lithography. An article by Chi Chen Wang explains the difficulties in terming these images "rubbings, " since they were actually produced without rubbing, but with a sort of pounce technique through the paper, resulting in a positive image - a process that could more rightly be considered a form of printing. A range of these images that were taken from various media is here reproduced in bright, bold color and black and white, most on a sturdy washi paper. The portolio spine is faded, with a faded band around the edge of one panel. Bottoms of "spine" edges worn with short splits. The book is in very good condition with some faint offset toning from the prints on facing pages. A very tactilly pleasing and visually stimulating production. ASIAN ART 5206 First Edition (limited to 500 copies) Paperbound in Portfolio Very Good Condition Arts & Crafts
