Treasures from the Studios of the Brothers Stone

The items in this catalogue have already been sold as a collection. However, knowing how many people hold the work of sinologists David Hawkes, and his son-in-law, John Minford, in high esteem, we present here the opportunity to gain a different perspective on these scholars and their interest in China.

We hope you enjoy looking through Treasures from the Studios of the Brothers Stone.
