China In Print catalogue cover

China In Print

The catalogue spans 800 years of history and focuses on the early contacts between China and the West. It includes many great rarities, a number of which have appeared in the market only once in a generation, or even a lifetime, and have set new record prices whenever they have been offered for sale. Among numerous highlights are a Yuan Dynasty printing block for paper currency collected by the sinologist Paul Pelliot; early works on European travellers in the Far East,  including the third Spanish edition of Marco Polo’s account; rare printings made by the early Jesuits in China; important manuscripts of early 17th century works by the Jesuits Valignano and Rodrigues, both from the Sir Thomas Phillipps Collection; a large scale 1840s manuscript map of Hong Kong and the surrounding region; and a selection of scarce 19th century works on Chinese languages and dialects.

A price list can be found at the end of the catalogue.

Please note these books are priced in US Dollars.
