Hi all

It has been a while since I started collecting snuff bottles, 40 years to be precise.

During my earlier stage of collecting, information on the subject was scarce and I started building a library for my reference.

Being Chinese myself, I have the advantage of reading the language and understanding the culture and history.
However, many of our collector friends may not have this privilege. As a result, they often have to guess, ask or search for the details related to the language content.

I am, therefore toying with the idea to write a series of eBooks related to Chinese calligraphy and inscriptions.
The first title will concentrate on the reign marks on snuff bottles, mainly Qing emperors with some apocryphal Ming dynasty reign marks as well.

It will come as an eBook in PDF format with the reader included in the package.

This eBook will not be free as I learned from the past that nobody will take free stuff seriously.

It will cost you USD 10 a copy and the eBook will be password encrypted, accessible only by the owner. Payment can be processed by Paypal.

As a bonus, every purchase will entitle you to a question related to Chinese calligraphy and inscription identification related to snuff bottles.

Let me think what you think about this and please indicate your interest before I embark on the project.

It should be delivered before the end of 2023.

No payment is required at this point in time. Only a 'Yes' or 'No' will suffice.

Thanks for reading.

Richard
