This is a fully illustrated catalogue of a private, Hong Kong-based collection formed over nearly four decades. Its selection of 100 jades spans the Neolithic times to the late Qing dynasty, throughout Chinese history, drawing upon the latest art-historical and archaeological research. Aside from in-depth discussions of individual pieces in the catalogue entries, additional essays include the collector's accounts of his collecting activities and their back stories; Prof. Jenny F. So's discussion of the special character of this collection; and contributions by Dr. Chu Xin and Prof. Chi Jo-shin— both important topics in jade studies inspired by pieces in this collection.
