Art From Ritual, Ancient Chinese Bronze Vessels from the Arthur M. Sackler Collection, introduction and catalogue by Dawn Ho Delbanco, 1983 (first edition, hardcover.) A scholarly study of 70 important ancient bronzes from the Shang to the Eastern Zhou dynasties. 157 pages illustrated profusely with full page color plates and black and white details. Detailed, scholarly discussion of items in the Sackler collection following an informative introduction. Ex Libris Warren E. Burger, 15th Chief Justice of the United States. Including a typed note from Sonnenreich & Roccograndi (a law practice) dated May 23, 1983 to Chief Justice Warren E. Burger "with compliments of Arthur M. Sackler, M.D." We acquired this volume in the mid 1990s from Second Story Books, Rockville Maryland, which company sold the art books from the estate of Chief Justice Burger. We are not book specialists and are selling from our own library collection. We consider this book to be in excellent condition with unmarked pages. ISBN 0-916724-55-7 (Two ISBN numbers are given, one designating paperbound and the other clothbound. But the present hardcover volume has faux leather covered boards, the front with gilt embossed title. We include an additional illustration of the front board.)
