Notes:

"This volume presents an extraordinary collection of archaic Chinese bronzes in the collection of the Poly Art Museum, the first corporate museum in China under the China Poly Group Corporation. All pieces have been acquired through various sources - some returned from overseas - and have been scrutinized by many experts including Yu Weichao, Ma Chengyuan and Li Xueqin. Most pieces date from the Shang to the Han, with a few rare examples from the Tang dynasty. Each piece is described in detail, with essays (in Chinese) discussing the 'divinities' images, musicology of bronze bells and scientific dating and conservation".
