Reference Book: Dawn of the Yellow Earth
An excellent pictorial reference book specializing in Neolithic Period / Early Chinese wares with good informative text by Regina Krahl and other contributors. Truly a must-have reference book for anybody interested in Neolithic / Early Chinese pieces. There are about 65 color photos all of which are really quite excellent. In our candid opinion, it's not enough of a reason to purchase an antique merely for the sake of a free book, but any client already seriously contemplating a purchase can enjoy this as a free extra.

Many collectors, especially beginners, do not make enough effort to acquire good reference books, and are tempted to spend on pieces before they have really learned enough to purchase responsibly and protect themselves. But there is really no better way to educate one's eye than studying the pieces of established collections in published books. However you acquire them, we encourage collectors to amass a good reference library which over time, is essential to building a solid collection and avoiding costly mistakes.
