Beautifully illustrated small book of the eight noble steeds of China and their riders. These illustrations are hand-painted on heavy hand-made paper and the edges are silk brocades with elaborate patterns. The book folds like an accordion. I have shown several of the pages, but if you would like additional shots, just ask and I will email them to you. There is one right-hand side page which is torn about 3" down into the page but it does not affect the illustration or the printing. Illustrations are on the left, printing, both in Chinese and English are on the right. One of the pages illustrations the famous ancient generals of China. The front of the book has Chinese characters in a small panel running two-thirds of the length of the cover from the top border. The covers are board wrapped in fabric. The book is approx. 7" high and 5" wide and about .5" thick.
