China - (Drawing about the lives of the saints or traces of the saints). With 16 original ink drawings. Bingshù wuyuè (probably June 1886). 19 fol. calligraphy mounted on cardboard. Cont. leporello album with decorative silk covers and mounted handwr. cover sign (rubbed and bumped, covers loose and with missing parts). - "Drawing on the Lives of the Saints" or "Traces of the Saints" is a pictorial cycle on the life and deeds of Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC), the most important philosopher of China. Statues of Confucius have been made since the Han Dynasty. In the Ming and Qing dynasties, when Confucianism was highly revered, the life of Confucius was depicted in art using a variety of media, such as stone engraving, woodcut, or, as in the present work, through drawings. Strictly speaking, our sequence of images is not a depiction of the life of Confucius, but rather a kind of preface. The beautiful and neat calligraphy is executed in grass script on gold-speckled paper of various colors. The author Bai Shou (or: Bo Shou) was a political figure in the late Qing dynasty. In 1877 he was admitted to the imperial examinations and appointed magistrate. - Lightly browned in the margins. Somewhat rubbed and partly with soiling. Joints mostly broken, boards loose.
