China in Print – Asia’s leading fair for rare books, prints, maps & ephemera

“Peking Dream Pillow” offered by Asia Bookroom

China in Print is Asia’s premier international fair and exhibition for rare books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, and ephemera with a particular focus on printed material from Asia itself. The three-day fair is set in the central waterfront location of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum and features some of the leading specialist dealers from Australia, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA. AbeBooks is thrilled to once again be a sponsor of this event.

Fine Books Magazine has previewed the event on its blog.

Among the highlights at Asia Bookroom’s stand will be two color woodblocks on oban tate-e sheets, diptyche style, satirically depicting the Opium War. Known as the Peking Dream Pillow (see above), it was created by Japanese artist Imaizumi Ippyō in 1884.

One of the fair’s most popular exhibits is bound to be the “lost” Agatha Christie manuscript notebook at Lucius Books. The unpublished notes relate to her novels, A Murder Has Been Arranged and They Do It With Mirrors, and her plays, Spider’s Web and Miss Perry. According to the seller, “Of the 74 Agatha Christie notebooks known to exist, this recently discovered one is not only the richest in content but is the only one outside of the author’s estate.”

And from Jonkers Rare Books: a Jessie M. King hand-painted vellucent binding of The Story of Rosalynde (1902), made for Cedric Chivers. It has been called “The most beautiful, and certainly the most ornate” of King’s vellucent binding designs.

The event runs November 17 -19 at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum Special Exhibitions Gallery, Central Ferry Pier No. 8, Man Kwong St, in Hong Kong.

Friday 17 November 16.00 – 20.00
Saturday 18 November 12.00 – 19.00
Sunday 19 November 12.00 – 16.00

Admission is free. Visit the fair website for more information.
