Template for images scanned from some newer reprint of Owen Jones’ book Examples of Chinese ornament, selected from objects in the South Kensington Museum and other collections, London: S. & T. Gilbert, 1867.

Explanation: For all the text pages and most of the plates in this book, we have got nice images from the Internet Archive, which were scanned from a very good copy of the book. But 12 of the 100 plates were missing from that specific copy. So we need to complete Jones’ series of plates from some other source. Therefore we have added scans from some newer reprint of the book, which are not as good as scans from some original copy, but nevertheless useful.

Parameters:

  1. Previous plate number (Arabic numeral, end of file name, with leading zeros, format: 000)
  2. Current plate number (Roman numeral, exactly like in the book)
  3. Current plate number (transcription as Arabic numeral, without leading zeros),
    and any additional hints about the plate number, if necessary
  4. Next plate number (Arabic numeral, end of file name, with leading zeros, format: 000)
  5. Jones’ original description of this plate from his “Description of the plates” (page 9–15 of the book), transcribed literally, using Jones’ (sometimes surprising) orthography
  6. Name of the Wikimedia Commons user who has scanned this image
  7. Additional hints, if any — or just don’t specify this parameter

About the license: Please use {{PD-old-100}} or {{PD-scan|PD-old-100}} with all images!

Description

This image shows plate {{{2}}} (= {{{3}}}). Jones’ original description of this plate from his “Description of the plates” (page 9–15), transcribed literally, using Jones’ orthography:

“{{{5}}}”

Additional hints by Commons users:

The image shows many little scratches, traces of dust etc.; many of these artifacts are already present in the reprint, and must originate either from the original chromolithographic print, or from the offset reproduction process which was needed to produce the reprint.
