PUBLISHER REVIEWS: REVIEW: “Chinese Ceramics” establishes a new and accessible approach to thinking about these globally significant objects, drawing from the Victoria and Albert Museums world famous collection, including many previously unpublished pieces. Chinese ceramics are among the most widely admired and collected in the world. From elegant Song celadons to decorative Ming vases and colorful Qing famille rose, ceramics produced in China have influenced taste and daily life globally. They are set apart from other world ceramic traditions by their remarkably long history of continuous production, consumption and appreciation and their exceptionally high quality. Because they were widely traded and admired, Chinese ceramics have also had an impact on numerous aspects of global cultural activity, from dining to drinking, decoration to architecture. Ceramics were amongst the first Chinese objects acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum. From 1854 the museum purchased and received as gifts and bequests more than 8,000 examples of all different types. This comprehensive collection forms the focus of this new survey of the subject. “Chinese Ceramics” offers a design history of these fascinating objects, emphasizing their origins as designed objects and their related production, consumption and role in trade and transfer. The Victoria & Albert Museum is also unusual in collecting Republican period pottery and propaganda ware, now emerging as new collecting categories, illustrated and discussed here for the first time. REVIEW: Stacey Pierson is Lecturer in the History of Chinese Ceramics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Previously she was Curator of the Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art which housed one of the foremost collections of Chinese ceramics outside China. She has published widely on the subject and is currently working on a cultural history of the Ming vase. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: A major Chinese design history from decorative Ming vases to propaganda ware. A stunning visual feast accompanied with competent descriptions and insightful background particulars. REVIEW: A new design history drawing on the Victoria & Albert Museum’s world famous collection of Chinese ceramics. Stunning new photography illustrates pieces ranging from decorative Ming vases to Republican period porcelain and propaganda ware. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: Stacey Pierson (of the School of Oriental and African Studies) writes with humor, injecting her obvious pleasure into the topic making it a joy to read, even for non-academics. It is informative, critical and well planned out. A must read for all those studying Chinese ceramics, with an introduction to the topic from the Neolithic to the present day, a discussion of production, aesthetics, consumption, trade and a final chapter on Chinese ceramics in the modern world. The focus of the book is not Neolithic ceramics, it is mainly Imperial Chinese ceramics and their trade throughout the (mostly) the western world. The bibliography is good, with both English and Chinese language sources. REVIEW: Exquisite! Kudos to Stacey Pierson author and Lecturer in the History of Chinese Ceramics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Previously Curator of the Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art which housed one of the foremost collections of Chinese ceramics outside China. I have seen it all and it is magnificent! I look forward to her upcoming cultural history of the Ming vase. Kenmore Emerson, Amateur, Dilettante and Collector REVIEW: The book examines the evolution of Chinese ceramics over time examining locations, techniques, and the stylistic changes. Clearly the author is knowledgeable, and the book presents large, colorful plates of beautiful pieces of art. Quite satisfying and attractive. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
