This massive work is a representative selection of 335 items from the vast holdings of Chinese manuscripts and rare books held at the Royal Library, Copenhagen, most of these from its Chinese Museum Collection.

          Manuscripts included in this collection date from the 8th century CE while the books date mainly from the 18th century and later. Details of the many more recent Chinese works held by the Royal Library are not found in this catalogue. However, specimens of such works are described.

          Designed especially as an essential source of reference for scholars working in all aspects of manuscript and rare book studies, the catalogue includes over 290 full-page illustrations (90 in colour) that help identify most of the books and manuscripts listed.
