Oriental Ceramics - The World's Great Collections, Tokyo, New York and San Francisco: Kodansha, 1982, standard edition complete in 11 volumes, folio, publisher's cloth with slipcases, illustrated throughout (11)

Originally published by Kodansha as a limited deluxe 12 volume set, this critically acclaimed and now scarce masterpiece has been issued in a standard edition with no compromise in the quality of scholarship or production. Each volume contains approximately 200 pages, with an average of 100 colour plates and 300 black-and-white plates. Each is handsomely cloth-bound with an attractive slipcase. This 1980-1982 standard edition set consists of 11 volumes but have added the publication Far Eastern Ceramics in the Victoria and Albert Museum published in 1980 (ISBN 0-85667-076-6) (174 pages; 2.199 kg; 27.2 x 37.4) which is a reprint of the 1975 edition (hence not bound equally as the set) in order to complete the original 12 volumes.
