The Penang Bookshelf's Library on Chinese Ceramics

Chinese Ceramics Collection
This month The Penang Bookshelf has been instructed in the sale of a significant collection of books on Chinese Ceramics. The range of titles should be of interest to everyone interested in this field, whether a dabbler or a devotee. Some of these titles are readily available internationally, a few are more rare. Few of these books appear regularly on the market in Asia.

Most of the books are in a fine or near fine condition, i.e. they have few, if any, blemishes and look new. Others are in very good condition.

Full details of the books are being prepared for sale at the moment. If you're interested in any of the books before they go on general sale and want further details, do contact The Penang Bookshelf by email at penangbookshelf@gmail. com or phone on +60-12-972-6485.
