Zhu zi quan shu (Complete Works of Zhu Xi)

Backhouse was a curious and untrustworthy figure, much given to self-aggrandizement and even outright fabrication; but the quality of his collection is incontestable proof of his rare knowledge of Chinese printing in all its forms. This edition of the works of Zhu Xi, for example, beautifully illustrates the technical and artistic perfection of the official publishing of the Qing Dynasty.


In Chinese; 164 leaves, 280×175 mm
