"This book is an account of the origin and evolution of the technique of Chinese jade carving; but in the development of his thesis the author explores the mineralogy of jade and the working of the stone by the Maoris of New Zealand, which have helped him to draw inferences as to the methods of the neolithic Chinese jade carvers.
