    At the heart of this catalogue is a collection of Chinese wood blocks used for printing texts, including a remarkable gathering of 820 labels carved on 82 double sided blocks, of medicinal recipes. There is a 17th century carved stone Epitaph to a local dignitary from the Fujian Province dated 1662 with a head and shoulder simple carved line portrait of the Great Man. A 17th century printed account of a Russian Embassy to the Chinese Court, and further items of Chinese interest include books on Chinese Printing and Chinese Ink, a First Edition in English of Mao’s Little Red Book in its original red plastic binding. An unusual photograph of the Kuomintang Assembly in 1948, and a Yao Dragon Bridge Scroll from southern China. Here are Bowring’s Printed Despatches after he was sent to China during the Opium Wars, and the Fifth Report on the East India Company which led to its Great Charter of 1813. From Tibet a 19th century suit of Lamellar Armour with the original helmet. The style would not have been out of place 6 centuries earlier. From India there is a remarkably bright Scroll Painting or Phad of the Legend of Pabuji measuring 50 x 150 ins. and an illustrated manuscript love poem by the poet Sayyid Ali Hasan. Finally a modern Cartographical oddity, a Map of Afghanistan in the form of a rug, decorated with tanks and armaments, made in the traditional manner for sale to the British and American troops and United Nations workers there during the last conflict.
