Illustrated throughout including endpaper artwork by Peter Suart. Chinese snuff-bottle enthusiasts have long known about the J & J Collection , which belongs to Julie and Jim Li and which is the subject of this book. Some of the bottles from this early collection (a full list of which is given in the index) were exhibited in Havana in 1945 and in Santiago in 1968. 260 bottles areshowcased in Volume I and 483 bottles are showcased in volume II, all of which include photographs by Fernando Chaves. A most scarce volume to complement your collection, or to serve as that very special gift.
Condition is very good, both volumes appear unused. Tight and square bound, all boards and case tight and firm, bright clean pages with no markings, chips, tears, creases, dog ears, repairs or restorations. Spines are sunned, slip case shows wear - please view photos. Photos are considered to be an integral part of the description. Many of my items are vintage and they naturally show wear from age and use.
You are ultimately responsible for viewing photos and asking questions. I cannot always detail each flaw the same way that you may view it. All items are described with honest intent!Different monitors may show differing shades of colors.
