Book:  From Court To Caravan (Chinese Tomb Sculpture)
An excellent pictorial reference book documenting the famed Anthony M. Solomon Collection of Chinese Tomb Sculptures. There are about 60 high quality, full color photos plus some very informative text by Virginia Bower. The pieces represented mostly cover the Han, Northern Wei, Northern Qi, and Tang Dynasties This is a very good book for anybody interested in tomb sculptures. 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.
