Pages: 144. Size: 11 x 9 inches. Chinese export ceramics are highly valued and collectable. This beautiful book tells the story of Chinese ceramics exported to Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia from the 14th to the 19th centuries through the V&A's extensive and celebrated collection. It illustrates the extraordinary range of styles and decorative patterns, the integration of European and Middle Eastern shapes and designs, and the circulation and uses of exported objects around the world. Superb new photography reveals over 200 stunning pieces ranging from bowls, pitchers, and vases, to statuary and much more. CONDITION NEW. New (albeit lightly damaged) hardcover with dustjacket. Victoria & Albert Museum (2011) 144 pages. Still in manufacturer's wraps, HOWEVER corners are lightly bumped; spine heel, spine head, lower open corner, likely the consequence of being clumsily shelved and bumped against bookshelf edges. Large, heavy books like this tend to get dragged across and bumped into book shelves as they are shelved and re-shelved, so it is not uncommon to see accelerated edge and corner shelfwear to both the dustjacket and covers of such huge, heavy books. It's possible as well that the books were bumped within the box which transported them from publisher to book store. The bumps are more along the nature of merely superficial cosmetic blemishes than they are serious damage, but nonetheless, they are discernible. Inside the publisher's wrapping has never even been removed, so you can be sure that the pages are clean, crisp, unmarked, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. Condition is entirely consistent with "new" (but blemished or "shop soiled") stock from a open-shelf bookstore environment (such as Barnes & Noble or B. Dalton, for example) wherein otherwise "new" books might show minor signs of shelfwear and/or other superficial cosmetic blemishes, consequence of simply being shelved and re-shelved. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! #8617d. .

PUBLISHER REVIEWS: REVIEW: This book illustrates the story of Chinese ceramics exported to Europe, the Middle East, and South East Asia from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, through a selection of objects in the Victoria & Albert Museum collection, one of the most extensive and comprehensive in the world. It is the first publication of a book exclusively devoted to this important part of the Museum’s collection. The majority of Chinese export ceramics held at the Victoria & Albert Museum date from the second half of the Ming Dynasty (1366-1644) to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and especially the period encompassing the reigns of the Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong Emperors (1662-1795), when the Dutch and English East India Companies controlled most of the trade activities with China. Stunning new photography showcases the extraordinary range of styles and decorative patterns of Chinese export porcelain, the integration of European and Middle-Eastern shapes and designs, and the circulation and uses of exported objects in Europe, the Middle East, and South-East Asia. The addition of metal mounts and painted decoration outside China transformed and adapted these objects to new uses once they reached their final destination.

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.
