Since it appeared in 1962, Professor Watson's masterly account of the bronzes of ancient China from the earliest times down to the Han Dynasty has come to be regarded as the standard work on the subject.
For this new edition, he has added a long preface incorporating the results of the latest research - in particular the substantial research carried out by Chinese field archaeologists in the past few years - and seven new colour plates. He has also made a number of corrections and amplifications in the main text and expanded the bibliography.;"This is a book for careful study and as such it will take its place as one of the most important books on Chinese art to be produced in recent years. An excellent book which has laid down sound foundations for the future." review of the first edition by Sir Harry Garner in Apollo.
