Rongbao Zhai Publishing House, Beijing, China, 1952
Originally compiled by the late Ming dynasty seal carver and publisher Hu Zhengyan (1584-1674), this collection of decorated letter papers was re-issued by Zheng Zhenduo in the 1930's. Offered here, the 1952 reprint is a faithful facsimile of the seventeenth century edition, even incorporating the blind-stamping technique of gauffrage where a dry woodblock is pressed into the paper to create a subtle, low-relief design
The 1952 edition is of superb quality and a perfect facsimile of the original edition
