The Lloyd Cotsen Study Collection of Chinese Bronze Mirrors is a co-publication of the Cotsen Occasional Press and the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Press. Volume I, The Lloyd Cotsen Study Collection of Chinese Bronze Mirrors: Catalogue, includes an engaging foreword by Lloyd Cotsen, an overview of major Chinese dynasties and periods, and a brief history of Chinese bronze mirrors by Suzanne Cahill. This volume presents a detailed catalogue of the extensive Cotsen Collection through high-quality images and illustrations of the mirrors in their approximate chronological sequence. Volume II, a set of eleven scholarly essays, goes further to investigate these mirrors as a study collection. Guided by the conviction that this particular constellation of mirrors may lead to substantive insights that cannot easily be obtained otherwise, the leading scholars who contributed to this volume used the materials in Volume I as a point of departure for explorations of topics of their own choice. The resulting diversity of the chapters is notablewith coverage ranging from a discussion of Han mirror inscriptions as modular texts to an analysis of mirrors inlaid with mother of pearland the findings are as novel and stimulating as they are preliminary.

Adoration and Glory is a celebration of centuries of artistic achievements of the Khmer peoples, a civilization nearly forgotten. The Khmer empire created one of the world's most glorious traditions of sculpture and architecture, inspired and influenced by the spiritual and in particular the Tantric, Hindu and Buddhist cultures and religions of India. The domains of the Khmer grew from a collection of small kingdoms to an empire that encompassed much of present day Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Due to Cambodia's more recent historic past, decades of political turbulence and isolation the public hardly got a chance to admire the magnificent artistic creations of this nearly forgotten culture. For the first time now this book offers a comprehensive overview of the outstanding capabilities and craftsmanship of ancient Khmer artists. Many important pieces in stone, bronze, silver and gold are published here for the very first time. As the book brings together the wealth of the Khmer culture, the authors were able to gain access to private as well as public collections worldwide to give unparalleled access to more than 150 objects. With the inclusion of Tantric Hindu and Buddhist images never seen in public and new technical research into manufacturing techniques by leading museum scientist Dr Pieter Meyers, the publication suggests many fresh interpretations of Khmer art and culture particularly at a time when the authenticity of newly excavated material is often in question. From the beginning, the book gained the support of HRH Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, Minister of Culture and Fine Arts, Kingdom of Cambodia as well as the Directors and teams at the National Museum of Cambodia. Both accessible and scholarly, this book represents an important resource for connoisseurs and aficionados of art, art historians, collectors and all those interested in the cultures of South East Asia. It contributes to a new and deeper understanding of Khmer art, and encourages further research and worldwide interest in helping Cambodia to protect and celebrate its rich artistic past. - Description by Crunruh Books.

Mediaeval Manichaean Book Art

Mediaeval Manichaean Book Art focuses on a corpus of 89 fragments of exquisitely illuminated manuscripts that were produced under the patronage of the Turkic-speaking Uygurs in the Turfan region of East Central Asia between the 8th and 11th centuries C.E., and used in service of the local Manichaean church. By applying a codicological approach to the analysis of these sources, this study casts light onto a lost episode of Central Asian art history and religious book culture. Mediaeval Manichaean Book Art represents a pioneer study in its subject, research methodology, and illustrations. It extracts codicological and art historical data from torn remains of lavishly decorated Middle-Persian, Sogdian, and Uygur language manuscripts in codex, scroll, and 'palm-leaf' formats. Through detailed analyses and carefully argued interpretations aided by precise computer drawings, the author introduces an important group of primary sources for future comparative research in Central Asian art, mediaeval book illumination, and Manichaean studies.

English summary: It is not always easy to decide whether an object of art or an antiquity is authentic or not. On the one hand, there is a gradual transition from "improving" restoration to outright deceit. On the other hand, the methods applied in the production of fakes become ever more sophisticated so that fakes are sometimes incorporated even in respected and well-known collections. This situation is even more unfortunate as these collections represent points of reference for further stylistic investigations and comparisons. Bochum-based foundation Situation Kunst owns a substantial collection of West African art which has been the subject of controversial opinions concerning its authenticity. The questions posed in the title of this book gave rise to an exchange of positions and experiences between art historians, ethnologists, scientists and restorers at a meeting at Ruhr-University Bochum in February 2007. The results of this memorable symposium are collected in this volume.
