About This Item

(Chillicothe): Mountain House Press, 1937. Quarto. (82)pp. One of only 125 copies "due to the limited number of original specimens available," numbered and signed by the author. "The present volume deals not only with the use of paper in Chinese sacrificial offerings, but a part of the book, with illustrations, is devoted to the making and decorating of the holy paper." Contains "48 original examples of spirit and related papers, ... 6 folding plates, 2 specimens of old paper, 2 collotypes ... and 7 illustrations." A luxuriously produced book bound in quarter red morocco with red and gold printed paper boards. Some offsetting from the samples, as usual, very slight spine fade, lacking slipcase, else a near fine copy of Dard Hunter's most beautiful publication. (Dard Hunter II, pp. 107-8).
