A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

English text; dark blue buckram with slip case and dust jacket; 22.9 x 29.3 cm; 4.313 Kg; 904 pages with 1,880 colour illustrations, 1,500 armorial services described; STILL WRAPED IN PLASTIC.; Foreword by Peter Ll. Gwynn-Jones, CVO, Garter Principal King of Arms.; Foreword by Peter Ll. Gwynn-Jones, CVO, Garter Principal King of Arms.; In 1974 Faber & Faber published Chinese Armorial Porcelain which has remained the most comprehensive book on the subject. At that time David Howard did not anticipate the need for a second volume; however, continued research has resulted in this book which illustrates 1,380 services not illustrated in Volume I, in addition to the 160 services which formed the addendum to that volume. The material in Chinese Armorial Porcelain Volume II is almost entirely additional to the first volume, containing a new introduction and four new chapters on aspects of the China Trade. All the appendices are revised and extended and the index of mottoes and index of services cover both volumes (the later containing an alphabetical list of over 4,000 services - more than 3,320 illustrated and 680 unillustrated - all made for the British or American market). This is an essential companion for those who own the first volume but this book certainly stands on its own and, as Garter King of Arms writes in the foreword, 'is an astounding work - destined to be a major reference source in the future'.
