WITH A REVIEW OF THE GEORGE EUMORFOPOULOS COLLECTION:
.
This set of 11 volumes comes with a very rare article
written by the celebrated Swedish Sinologist and scholar:
Bernard KARLGREN. This is a book review of volume 4 above,
and is a reprint from the B.S.O.S., London 1930, pp.241-252,
and is a copious and complete essay. Karlgren uses many
Chinese characters in the text and goes into minute detail
and critique about the items found in Yetts book. Karlgren
or the printer made a typographical error in calling the
volume number II, rather than correctly citing it as volume
IV.
