Taiwan: National Palace Museum, 1974. First Edition. Folio (38x27x1cm; in chemise of 29x27.5x1.5cm); [iii] + 41pp, each page a double-spread. Entirely in Chinese.

Traditional Chinese fukurotoji stab-binding, with the bound spine on the right edge and the pages folded at the outer edge. Wraps of limp textured teal paper with rice paper label. Housed in a light honey yellow chemise, with paste-on label.

Chemise shows some shelfwear, with sunning in upper back left corner, and small scuffs—but it has done its job: the volume itself is impeccable, as new.

Emperor Huizong (1082–1135) was the father of Emperor Gaozong (1107–1187), a dynasty of rulers by habit and calligraphers by talent. This volume reproduces, in 41 double-spreads, exemplary details of the celebrated poems written out in their hands.
