The Lloyd Cotsen Study Collection of Chinese Bronze Mirrors is a
co-publication of the Cotsen Occasional Press and the Cotsen
Institute of Archaeology Press. Volume I, The Lloyd Cotsen Study
Collection of Chinese Bronze Mirrors: Catalogue, includes an
engaging foreword by Lloyd Cotsen, an overview of major Chinese
dynasties and periods, and a brief history of Chinese bronze
mirrors by Suzanne Cahill. This volume presents a detailed
catalogue of the extensive Cotsen Collection through high-quality
images and illustrations of the mirrors in their approximate
chronological sequence. Volume II, a set of eleven scholarly
essays, goes further to investigate these mirrors as a study
collection. Guided by the conviction that this particular
constellation of mirrors may lead to substantive insights that
cannot easily be obtained otherwise, the leading scholars who
contributed to this volume used the materials in Volume I as a
point of departure for explorations of topics of their own choice.
The resulting diversity of the chapters is notablewith coverage
ranging from a discussion of Han mirror inscriptions as modular
texts to an analysis of mirrors inlaid with mother of pearland the
findings are as novel and stimulating as they are preliminary.
