1999 Paperback New 0965427021. Flawless copy, brand new, pristine, never opened--143 pages; illustrated. Publisher description: "The Chinese qin, an ancient seven-stringed
zither, was an integral part of literati culture in East Asia. Its mythic origins, the beauty and efficacy of its music, and the legendary heroism of its musicians are all part of the vast canon and lore that developed around the instrument over the course of two thousand years. The music of the qin was celebrated in poetry, and the instrument came to be de rigeur in depictions of solitary scholar-gentlemen at leisure in the landscape. Selected works of art, antique instruments, and four separate essays are brought together to explain the profound significance of the ancient qin and its music, and its spread from China to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam."
