The First-ever English Travel Book and More at China in Print 2018
Why We Recommend it
The first Japanese Buddhist world map, a rare guide to Shanghai for Russian exiles, board games and other historical treasures documenting wanderlust will be displayed and sold at this year’s edition of China in Print.
Bringing together thirty-two of the world’s leading specialist dealers in rare books, manuscripts, maps and photography, this fair showcases curious historical artefacts, many of which are museum-quality pieces.
China in Print has as acquired a reputation as a leading fair specialising in printed works from the Far East and beyond. This year’s offers will feature The Decades of the newe worlde, the first-ever travel book written in English – penned in the mid sixteenth century, this extremely rare work documents the explorations of the Spaniards and is also the first book on record to refer to ‘China’.
Sumptuous nineteenth-century Chinese gouaches depicting the Chinese tea trade, street life and wildlife, will also be on show, alongside travel ephemera such as boards game for P&O passengers travelling to Asia, Africa and Australia, travel posters from the 1930s and 19th century business cards from Hong Kong and Shanghai traders.
