A lavish production on the important later ceramic works from the Ch'ing Dynasty, this deluxe issue further enhanced by the presence of five additional plates not present in the trade issue. That this copy is number 1 from the limited edition makes it the perfect collector's copy.

Robert Lockhart Hobson (1872-1941) was keeper of the Department of Ceramics and Ethnography at the British Museum and an authority on far eastern ceramics; he published numerous books and catalogues on the ceramic arts of China and the Far East, of which this in the deluxe format is definitely one of the most collectable.
