The Edward ... Chow Collection. Part Three: Ming and Qing Porcelain and Works of Art

Hong Kong, Sotheby Parke Bernet, in association with Michel Beurdeley and Lane Crawford Holdings Ltd., 1981.

Quarto, 184 pages with over 80 pages of plates (many in colour); the sheet of pre-sale estimates for these lots (#401 to #625) is loosely inserted.

Papered boards; front bottom corner slightly bumped; an excellent copy with the lightly creased dustwrapper.

Edward T. Chow (1910-1980) built up his collection on 'three fundamental tenets, namely the rarity of the piece, the quality of the decoration, which had to be without the slightest infelicity, and the state of preservation, which had to be quite perfect' (foreword).
