Pictorial printing in Chinese books: three examples from the seventeenth century

1978

Abstract

CHINA, the country of origin of both paper and the printed word, was also the first to print book illustrations. However, it is the Japanese achievement in this field that has captured the imagination of the outside world, as was so eloquently and reflectively demonstrated by my colleague David Chibbett, in a comprehensive study published shortly before his sudden death last November.
