Text in English. Catalogue from the auction held January 17, 18, and 19, 1916. Included are a Prefatory Note and Conditions of Sale, a dynastic Chronology, and the well-annotated, illustrated catalogue of 597 items. Jades, mirror paintings on glass, miniature bottles, celadon, bird cages, Fukien porcelain, panels, screens, carpets, and more. No color plates are included, as in other catalogues of this ilk, but nothing appears to be missing. This remarkable Collection of Chinese Art Objects has been made by Mr. A. W. Bahr, formerly of Shanghai, who is well known as a connoisseur and authority on Chinese Art. It rep­resents the result of many years patient accumulation and selec­tion, almost every piece having some distinctive merit whether it be form, color or design. Quite rare.
