Description: Jade book in which the Shunzhi Emperor confers a title on his ancestor, written in Chinese and Manchu, the text engraved and partly gilded, partly painted in ink, on ten folios of nephrite jade; made in China, dated 1648. The ten jade tablets that form this bilingual book are pierced at the back and were presumably bound together with cords to form a single object. As the Chinese text reads from right to left and the Manchu text from left to right, each inscription begins at its respective cover to end in the middle in a symmetrical arrangement. As such, the particular nature of this jade book means that it could be read from either cover. No original numbering of the folios is apparent; the folios here are presented from right to left along the object.

Description: Title folio from a jade book of ‘Fifty imperial essays on “New verses on traditional models” (Xin yuefu) of Bai Juyi’ (Yuchi yong Bai Juyi xin yuefu cheng wushi zhang bing xiao qi ti shi), written in Chinese, engraved and gilded on nephrite jade; made in China, probably in the 18th century. A single folio of light grey nephrite jade engraved and gilded on one side with the title in a panel flanked by imperial dragons, and on the other side with the beginning of the text. There is no means of inferring the number of folios which completed the book. The 'New verses on traditional models' cited in the title consist of fifty poems from the earlier years of the poet Bai Juyi (772-846), published in 824 as part of a collection entitled 'Changqing ji'. These poems were derived from earlier Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) 'yuefu', a form of Chinese poetry which was in turn influenced by folk-ballads.
