121 ECKE, Gustav. Chinese Domestic Furniture. Ninth Prnting in dustjacket and slipcase
Charles E. Tuttle Company / Hong Kong University Press, Rutland, Vermont & Tokyo, Japan / Hong Kong, 1985, ISBN:0804800987 
ECKE, Gustav. Chinese Domestic Furniture. Rutland, Vermont & Tokyo, Japan :Charles E. Tuttle Company / Hong Kong : Hong Kong University Press, (1985) . Ninth Printing. Pp (12),[[1]-49,(1),1-161[plates],(1). Illustrated. 4to, broth cloth, gilt letering to front board and spine. "Throughout the history of Chinese domestic life, architecture, layout, and furniture have been governed by rigid standards. While the Chinese had early developed to perfection the art of cultured ease, the setting of their daily life retained an appearance of archaic austerity—an austerity observed no less in the restraint in design and ornament than in the power of line and cubic proportion that were second nature to the classic Chinese builder and the cabinetmaker.It is with the work of the latter that this unusual book is concerned. Pub lished in Peking in 1944 and limited to an edition of 200 copies, Gustav Ecke's Chinese Domestic Furniture was destined before long to become one of the most soughtafter items in the book trade—to the extent, it appears, thatowners of the book have even had their copies stolen. Its reputation among collectors and interior decorators particularly during the recent upsurge of interest in Chinese furniture, has risen to new heights. It is thereforea pleasure to make this rare book available once again— this time in a com plete and unabridged photographic reprint of the original edition, including all of its 161 plates, in which 122 masterpieces of Chinese furniture areillustrated, 21 of them in measured drawings. Chinese furniture, as Dr. Ec ke points out in his illuminating introductory essay, has retained its architectural character and its imprint of pristine dignity throughout centuries of changes in taste down to the present day of dying traditions. Subordinate to the symmetry of the Chinese room, it displays methods that quite probably date from the very beginnings of Chinese culture. While this holds true even for elaborately carved and lacquered work, it is particularly evident in the plain hardwood pieces, with their emphasis on structure, that arepresented in this book. In his choice of examples, Dr. Ecke explains, he h as been guided by the creative spirit of the Chinese as it reveals itself in the wood and in the interpretation of traditional patterns. "The ourity,.the plastic strength, and the flawless polish of these pieces," he says, " constitute their chief aesthetic appeal." Such qualities have long since aroused the admiration of Western decorators and makers of fine furniture, for in functional joinery, the Chinese craftsman, as Dr. Ecke puts it, "manifests his respect for the spirit of the wood and is command of line, curve, and cubic proportion. Here are found the rules of Chinese cabinetmaking which, in the early eighteenth century, became the ideal of the English ebonist. He learned and borrowed from China." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction : Preliminary; The box construction and its platform derivatives; The yoke rack and kindred platform devices; Trestle combinations; The seat; Splay-leg cabinets and related designs; Square cases; Cabinet woods; Metal mounts; Craftmanship - ornament - dating; Cabinet making after Yu¨an, rise and decline; Conclusion.

Mr. Fletcher traces a particularly thrilling ro bbery to its source through his famous Scotland Yard men who may seem, he writes, "the worst muddlers one has ever encountered, but they get there!" Acharacter study of the thief, running all through the book, is quite suffi cient to make it notable among the novels of Mr. Fletcher." (from the dj).
