The Topkapi Saray Museum's collection of Chinese ceramics is one of the world's largest and most important, yet comparatively little of it has ever been published. The wares assembled here present a continuous review of porcelains made for export from the 13th to the 19th century which, in its range of styles and designs, is without equal in any other surviving collection. Please note, price does not include postage, this will need to be paid for separately. These books are very heavy, and postage will vary according to your location. With some 4,500 pieces dating from the Yuan and Ming dynasties, and a further 5,500 from the Qing, the present three-volume set covering the entire collection constitutes the most extensively illustrated work on Chinese ceramics yet published and provides an unrivalled source of dating and the study of design. The main part of the work consists of a complete and definitive catalogue in which every piece is itemised. Each entry is accompanied by one or more monochrome illustrations, scaled in size according to importance, and many are also shown in color. In all therefore, there are over 4,800 illustrations, of which 200 are large-size color plates. The volumes divide the catalogue into three major sections, 'Celadon Wares,' 'Yuan and Ming Porcelains,' and 'Qing Porcelains.' These sections and their sub-divisions are arranged chronologically and are prefaced by extensive explanatory introductions by Regina Krahl and John Ayers. The first volume is introduced by a series of essays surveying the background to the collection and various aspects of the ceramics themselves. Dr Unsal Yucel, Head of Research at the Topkapi Saray and Lecturer in the Department of Fine Arts at Istanbul University, and Dr Julian Raby, Fellow in Islamic Studies at St, Hugh's College, Oxford, throw new light on how porcelains both entered and left the palace, by what routes, in what quantities and at what dates. Dr Raby also contributes a penetrating examination of the nature of Ottoman taste in this field, showing how porcelain was regarded at the Court. Further important articles examine in detail the use of Chinese and Arabic marks on the porcelains. A concordance, full working bibliography and a thorough index complete the work. Regina Krahl spent over a year cataloging the Chinese ceramics at the Topkapi Saray. She has done extensive work on Chinese esport ceramics in museums in Japan and South-East Asia and has been a researcher for Sotheby's. She has also prepared a catalogue of the Evelyn de Rothschild Collection of Chine ceramics at Ascott. Nurdan Erbahar is Curator of Chinese and Japanese porcelains at the Topkapi Saray, Istanbul. John Ayers is the former Keeper of the Far Eastern Department of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (1970-82). He is a well-known authority on Chinese ceramics and author of many books and catalogues on the subject. Keywords: Ceramics, China, Turkey KRAHL, R. & N.
