45 LIST FROM OUR STOCK 487 Goodrich, Chauncey ed: GUANHUA CUIZHEN. A Character Study in Mandarin Colloquial, Alphabetically Arranged.. 官話萃珍 美國富善著 京都匯文書院藏板 光緒二十四年. Beijing, , 263, 2 folded leaves. 24x15 cm. Stitched A rare dictionary of Chinese in an interesting and unusual format. Goodrich explains that he undertook the compilation of this dictionary because of the lack of reference works that supplied examples of compounds (combinations of characters) and their usage in then contemporary colloquial Chinese. He asked his various teachers to produce sentences including these compounds and short phrases and then edited out those that were to high or literary in style. Another unusual aspect of the dictionary is its alphabetic arrangement according to romanization, making it easy for westerners to use. Finally, the book is produced in the rather splendid hybrid format that was used for some similarly translingual books produced in China at the turn of the century. It is printed using lithography, the binding is entirely Chinese, but it also has an English title page and Goodrich s brief introduction in English. Generally in very good condition with a couple of preliminary pages dog-eared, and waterstain to a number of pages intruding at times onto text, although not noticeably so. The outer cover is thin blue cloth and there was a red Chinese-style book label that has suffered loss of the first two characters. Rare. 488 Gordon, Elinor: COLLECTING CHINESE EXPORT PORCELAIN.

Typescript ms. in a contemporary binder Typescript of an unpublished collection of literary essays, poems, stories and fragments by the author of A Short History of Chinese Civilisation. The latter was a well-written introduction to Chinese history and culture published in 1943 and introduced by Laurence Binyon. On the evidence of this manuscript, Tsui Chi, was well educated and highly cultivated, a literal and spiritual exile, living in Oxford, with the fine literary sensibilities of those highly paradoxical and interesting times. Titles of various sections of the manuscript give some idea of the aesthetics involved: Nature: Seasons : with prose poems on sparrows, snowdrops, a starling s haunt, etc.; Unscientific Stories of Animals ; Suns and Floods. The Consolation of Philosophy is subdivided into On Pain, On Loneliness, On Love and Loveliness, Anatomy of Melancholy, An Inquiry into Sin and In Search of Greater Love. Feelings and Sentiments are brief poetic essays: a number of prose poems and a number of actual poems, many based on verse originally composed in Chinese. The final section Three Men consists of short stories spun around particular characters. All of this in written in what Binyon described as lucid English with occasional lapses where it would be hard to say whether our difficulties are a matter of language or aesthetics. The writing is also laced with explanatory allusions to Chinese literature and the manuscript is provided with an index of names from the Shanhan Jing, and a bibliography of the classical Chinese works which are sited constantly. The manuscript is highly interesting from the literary and sociological points of view, and also in terms of the position of the Chinese abroad at the time. The first page of the manuscript has the ink inscription, Tsui Chi, / Heyford House, / Heyford Hill, / Littlemore, / Oxford. It is from the library of Cheng Te-k un. 723 (Turk, Frank): TRURO CITY MUSEUM ORIENTAL COLLECTION: OSHIGATA OF SIGNATURES & TSUBA PART 2.

64 FROM OUR STOCK 64 HANSHAN TANG BOOKS 732 Waley, Arthur trans.; original woodcuts by Ralph Kiggell: LEADING THE CRANES HOME. A selection of Chinese poems translated by Arthur Waley. Llandogo, pp. Introduction, title page with double page colour woodblock print and 24 poems each accompanied by a colour woodblock print. Afterword. 35x29 cm. Decorative boards. In Chinese-style slipcase A selection of 24 poems taken from Waley s two works 170 Chinese Poems and Chinese Poems. The poems range in date from the Han to the Song dynasties and include works by China s greatest poets. In addition to the wonderful double page woodblock print of a crane on the title page, a colour woodblock print by the artist, Ralph Kiggell, accompanies each poem depicting the artist s interpretation of the poem, an aspect or a theme. Kiggell studied Chinese at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London where Waley had also studied. Kiggell s artistic interpretation of the poems thus undoubtedly possesses greater cultural insight than that of an artist purely versed in western culture. Many of the woodblocks are double page. The paper is 250 gsm Velin Arches, the type is Elizabeth, and Kiggell s woodcuts were all printed from the wood. Numbered edition of 150 copies, each signed by the artist.
