With a forward written in both English and Chinese, this book is a great resource for all those interested in seals from various time periods. With hundreds of pictures of not only the seals themselves, but also their imprints, for those who read seal script this book is a goldmine of information. For those, like myself, who are not literate in Chinese it is still an invaluable resource for the identification of seals.
