Reader's note

Top up your knowledge with these 1958 first editions of Chinese Art I & II by William Willetts. This Pelican collection attempts to relate the traditional art-forms of China to the social, political, and technological conditions out of which they arose. Each art-form has a chapter of its own, where it is discussed in the context of a particular historical epoch. Volume one opens with an account of the geographical background of Chinese society, and of its prehistory. Then it follows a chapter on jade, set in the context of the late Neolithic China, and one on the art of the ritual bronzes covering the first two historical dynasties - the Shang-Yin and Chou.
