"This gorgeously produced two-volume catalog presents the Ch'ing (Qing) dynasty imperial textiles and costumes from the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, considered one of the finest and most comprehensive holdings outside of China. The collection has a rich history- approximately half of it belonged to the San Francisco attorney William E. Colby, who amassed it throughout the opportunistic decades of the 1920s and 1930s. Only a few works from the 592-piece collection have been exhibited over the past six decades the 1991 exhibit "Imperial Silks of the Ch'ing Dynasty" displayed more of the collection than ever before, and is the foundation of this comprehensive catalogue. 'Imperial Silks' opens with an overview of the archaeological record of silk in China and then divides the museum's collection of Ch'ing dynasty textiles into nine chapters covering 26 basic categories of garments, decorative furnishings, and accessories. Nearly every piece is photographed -many are in color- and about 200 of the primary objects are accompanied by a technical analysis that includes the structure of the fabric, thread counts, and dyes used. A stupendous set, and about as heavy as a small Volkswagen.
