25 Asian Prints in Folder 1978 (All Portraits, Nine in Color)
1 25 Asian Prints in Folder 1978 (All Portraits, Nine in Color)
Asia Unknown 1978 Card folder Very Good 
I have had these prints for years, but never listed them because the title is in Asian characters. I can't recall where I even got them, but they are quite handsome. There are supposed to be 16 black and white numbered prints, all portraits drawn with pencil, inside the folder and all are present. But here's the nice surprise -- nine other numbered prints in full color appear to have hitchhiked along. These apparently were at least a set of 10, but one is missing. Nine nice freebies aren't bad though! :-) The folder measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2" and is very clean, though toned. A previous owner also taped a short tear at top of spine. The prints are very white -- no foxing or toning. Paper is lightweight and one print shows a small rough area to top edge, but could still be framed with no problem. Overall an interesting set.

7 Chinese Travel Ephemera: Quantude Restaurant Advertising, Boarding Card, Shanghai Antique & Curio Store
China Quanjude Group; /China International Travel Service 2004 Card cover Fine condition for all 
I just found this array of fun things in a travel collection I bought a couple years ago. Everything was in the envelope with the restaurant advertising. The envelope, the card, and business card came from the China Quanjude Group which introduced the roast duck seen in the photo in 1864, during the third year of Tongzhi, Quing Dynasty. There's also a Boarding Card from the China International Travel Service, a small advertising card which lists the Chinese Dyanasties and the items which can be bought at the store, and lastly, two very attractive Chinese characters on beautiful paper. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Washington D.C. International Sculpture Center 1993 0963363816 / 9780963363817 Card Cover Fine condition 
If you appreciate Japanese art this is a particularly interesting catalog, as it shows creative "waves" which changed Japanese calligraphy. This went on for a long period of time to reach the Avant Garde Calligraphy Movement in Japan which shares a relationship between the Avant Garde and Western Abstract Art. Another essay titled The Calligraphic Spirit and Modern American Art. From there we see the many samples of modern calligraphy.The catalog measures 9" square and has 111 pages. ENGLISH language primarily. (Asia Box 1)

Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
9 Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XI, No. 3 soft cover Good 
There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows several creases at the corner. There's also a small bit of wear to both the top and bottom of the spine, but it doesn't impinge on the binding at all. Everything is tight. Now then, the best story in this issue is a TEN PAGE extravaganza about Japanese cloth. If you love textiles, or all things Japanese as I do, this one's a keeper! Other articles are about International Cement, Soviet Art, symphony finance, Social Security, the six day bike race at Madison Square Garden, and Duparquet, the company which provided quality cooking utensils and kitchen design. Magazine is huge at 11"x14", but still ships for $2.00 in the U.S. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but due to size and weight the shipping will be higher. Contact me with destination and I will provide an actual cost. No obligation.

Oriental Art Catalog August 27, 88, 1970 Robert C. Eldred Co., Inc.
16 Oriental Art Catalog August 27, 88, 1970 Robert C. Eldred Co., Inc.
East Dennis, Massachsuetts Robert C. Eldred Co., Inc. 1970 Card cover Very good condition 
Catalog is clean and bright with no tears and no writing, and is tightly bound. The only fault is a trim to the yapped edge at side edge of front cover. This is often done because the overhang develops small tears which end up with pieces of the edge falling off. This trim was better than most. The catalog measures 7" x 10-1/2" and has black and white photographs which show both Chinese and Japanese items. Most of the works came from the estate of Andrew R. Dole of Oak Park, Illinois. Session I focused on Japanese art. Among the items were prints and paintings, snuff bottles, rugs, wood carvings, sculpture, ivory, netsuke, inro and lacquer,furniture, textiles and more. The second session was Chinese art including jewelry, pottery, porcelain, rugs and metals.
