I am certain I purchased this book from Amazon.com (in 2016). They can verify a purchase of course (my apologies if I'm mistaken). It is a lovely book filled with trivia, history, color photos, reproductions of art (murals, wall hangings). Lovely! If you appreciate "Old China" like I do, this is a must-have for your private library.

A most interesting book with lots of detail, drawings and historical information. I saw this book some months ago in the Chinese library of a large university and decided to get it. Not sorry I did so. Highly recommend it for those interested in Chinese history.
