Although there are a large number of books on objets d'art available in a higher price range, there is very little to suit the enthusiast of more modest means. This series of handbooks, "Collectors' Pieces," answers that need. These books are intended for the reader who has limited knowledge of the subject, perhaps culled from visits to museums, but who may be encouraged to start a collection of the less expensive pieces. Each volume deals with the subject historically and, where applicable, biographically, and explains the processes of manufacture in simple terms. The reader is told where he may see the rarer pieces, and to help him in identification, a list of marks is given where appropriate. In this little book, the author has tried to gather together the main facts about oriental lacquer from the standpoint of the Western collector, using the Chinese or Japanese terms in most general use here.
