The long Histories of book printing and collection in China and Hungary have been universally acknowledged. The Song-dynasty edition of Ritual of Zhou with annotations by Zheng Xuan of the Han Dynasty and explanation by Lu Deming of the Tang Dynasty was printed at the jianyang Printing House during China's Southern Song Dynasty, and now is collected in the Peking University Library. The illuminated book was exquisitely printed, representing the level of block-printing technology and engraving art of the Song Dynasty. The first book printed in Hungary, Hungarian Illuminated Chronicle, published in 1473, has a great impact in Europe, and is now among the rich colle4ction of ancient books of the famous National Szechenyi Library in Budapest, Hungary.
