The latest and most definitive study on the subject, this exclusive two-volume book richly illustrates one of world's best collections of Chinese snuff bottles.

The J & J (Julie and James Li) Collection was amassed with profound knowledge, keen eyes, and impeccable taste. Matched only by few collections in the world, it is rich in the variety of materials, including jade, amber, porcelain, enamel, glass, and other hardstones. Every bottle is a class in itself and represents the highest of quality and rarity.

The two-volume book not only studies the collection but also incorporates new knowledge on the subject. It describes every single bottle, translates all inscriptions, and explains the rebuses and symbolism on the bottles. The material is valuable as an indispensable reference for collectors of snuff bottles and other Chinese arts.
