Description

For Chinese weapons I found a book: Weapons in Ancient China, by Yang Hong. It is a survey, not a catalog.

China is like the world: it has everything in it. The current evidence shows that there were people “everywhere” by about 12,000 years ago. In China they started writing stuff down about 5000 years ago, roughly the same time as Egypt and Sumer. But the Egyptian and Sumerian civilizations are gone, but China is still here.

Over the decades I’ve been selling collectibles my market has been about 97% coins, 2% paper money, 1% everything else.
