"Chinese Carpets" by E. Gans-Ruedin, published in 1981 by Kodansha.

First edition.


Tall red cloth wrapped boards in board slipcase, end papers feature a map of the Chinese nation, cloth head and tail band in the binding, profusely illustrated with full color images of the carpets along with some black and white photos of people and other subjects, all on glossy paper, text is on satin paper; 200 pages including index.

This is a "near fine" to "fine vintage hardcover that appears to never been read. The binding is straight and crisp with equal board hinges. No loose, torn or folded pages. No writing nor names. The text block is square, closes tightly, uniform and bright all around, a tiny, faint hint of foxing at the top outer edge corner, first 3/4" down from top - you really have to look for it. The board corners are square and crisp, not worn.

The original dust jacket is not clipped, showing the publisher's original price of $39 inside the front flap upper. A "near fine" or better copy, no signs of use. Obviously has spent its time inside the slipcase.

The gray board slipcase is intact, nor splits, all seams are good. Still enclosed in the manufacturers heavy mil shrinkwrap.

A super nice vintage tome! This is nicer than many books you can buy "new" in your local book store.

Will ship promptly, carefully packaged and fully insured.
