In 1759, the Qianlong Emperor of China commissioned a catalog of comprehensive, illustrated regulations for ceremonial garments and accessories worn by the members of the imperial household. Not since the HUANGCHAO LIQI TUSHI was written have we seen a more stunning look at the colors, designs, and insignias of China's last imperial dynasty. With detailed descriptions and exquisite illustrations, this invaluable reference preserves the fashionable side of China's dynastic history for generations to come. With beautiful color illustrations culled from public and private collections and a helpful glossary of Chinese terms, IMPERIAL WARDROBE is an ideal reference book for collectors, scholars, and Chinese history enthusiasts.
