This book is a new work after the "Chinese Jade History", following the publication of "World Jewelry", "Golden and World Economy", "Gem", "Diamond Identification Guide" and "Gemology", the seventh new work.
The books I have written have been sold all over the world since 1969. For more than 40 years, readers, friends, peers, and enthusiasts from all walks of life have encouraged and provided valuable opinions. I am grateful for this.
This book is based on the characteristics of the times, shapes, carvings, and ornamentation. It systematically and selectively collects the treasures of the finest photographs, and strives to show the pictures and texts. Focusing on the Neolithic Age, Shang and Zhou Dynasties, and the Qin and Han Dynasties, all the recorded works are cherished by collectors, but they are undisclosed artifacts, some of which are extremely precious and rare.
Since the 1950s, this book has been based on the jade treasures born in the archaeological community. It also refers to the treasures treasured by museums and collectors all over the world. Thanks to the strong support of ancient jade lovers all over the world, through the field test of more than 20 years to various places, a large number of ancient jade articles have been seen. In order to summarize, study, and repeatedly compare, according to the times, carefully arrange the characteristics and development of ancient jade articles of various periods. I do my best, at any cost, and strive to be close to the series of clear, complete, precise and accurate, and based on evidence.
Just like the consistent style of the past, I strive to keep it simple, concise, and easy to understand, so as to ensure that all readers can comprehend. It is inevitable that the mistakes and omissions of the book are inevitable. The readers, experts and scholars all over the world correct and explore the essence of this outstanding Chinese cultural tradition. If it can be carried forward, gain glory for the nation, and enjoy the rewards of people at home and abroad, it is the author's greatest wish.
