Early Ming Wares of Chingtechen

Brankston, A.D.

First published by Henri Vetch, Peking, 1938. Reissued, with a Biographical and Bibliographical Note of the Author, and a note on "The A.D. Brankston Collection of Chinese Porcelain in the British Museum", by Soame Jenyns (1954), by Vetch and Lee Limited, Hong Kong, 1970.

This edition reprinted, with permission, by Oxford University Press, 1982.; Early Ming Wares of the Chingtechen became the standard work on the wares of the reigns of Yung Lo (1403-24) and Hsuan Te (1426-35). The author, A.D. Brankston, brought to the subject a rare combination of taste and enthusiasm, documentation from Chinese sources and knowledge gained in the field. Although its plate reproduction cannot match today's standards, Early Ming Wares of Chingtechen neverthless remains an important pionnering work. Out of print for over a decade, it is now reprinted by Oxford Univerity Press in the Oxford for Asia Studies in Ceramics series.
