The commentary addresses Chinese ceramics from the period of the reign of the Emperor K'ang Hi. Excerpt: "The XVIIth and the XVIIIth centuries have been the golden age of Chinese procelains. The Louvre is one of the museums where may be most easily studied the ceramics of that period. Mr. Grandidier had indeed applied himself to collecting for the reigns of K'ang Hi, Yong Tcheng, and K'ien Long...." Elegantly illustrated.
