Zan par, Tibetan wooden moulds. A focused and enriched bibliography. And where ?

In working on this list of books, I tried to follow serious bibliographic criteria.

I am sure I did not succeed in doing so and I do apologize.

I listed both books personally consulted and texts that I judge relevant to the theme.

When possible, even if not ritual in scientific papers, I pointed out pages and plates specifically devoted to the zan par.

I believe that today, apart from the books written in Far Eastern languages that I cannot read,
there is no other bibliography so focused and offering such accurate directions
for a rapid identification in a book of pages and plates devoted to the zan par.

Any rectification, suggestion and proposal for new entries to make this bibliography truly exhaustive
is and will always be deeply appreciated.
Each contributor will be awarded with due copyrights and generous libations of Venetian ombre.

Zan Par : where ?

I think that it might prove useful to add to my Focused Bibliography and Site List a further list
of the public collections everywhere in the world where one can see and study Tibetan zan par.
Obviously this is a work in progress: my list covers probably less than 20% of the real situation.
I am consciously risking this first rash step to stimulate everybody everywhere
to participate by adding names of museums, public and private collections and even antique galleries having zan par. It would be lovely to have, for each location, the Museum’s inventory numbers and photos of the zan par.  Museums who have zan par with catalogue number or photos show an * at the end of the line. For some locations I’m still waiting for confirmation. So to these I will add “wfc“. I also list some Museums that do not have zan par because even a “No” can be an useful information to avoid wasting of time in futile research. I will personally give my thanks for each contribution and will always quote the source. Moreover, I will be extremely happy to honour every new contributor to this list of zan par locations with cicheti and ombre in Venice

    Mi scrive oggi Hans Roth

    Universität Bonn – Institut für Orient- und Asienwissenschaften – Abteilung für Mongolistik und Tibetologie

    Hans è di una rarissima e squisita gentilezza. Purtroppo non ho il tempo ora di verificare
    se le sue indicazioni sono già state incorporate oppure no nei miei elenchi qui sopra.
    Perciò in attesa di poter controllare, pubblico il suo prezioso messaggio esattamente come l’ho ricevuto :

    Dear Franco,
    I am not sure if I gave you last time all museum-numbers of the Zan-pa from the archive.
    I give you here now again my Archiv Code Numbers. You remember :
    first number: My Museum Code (p.ex.1 = Museum Hamburg),
    the following Nr. is my running number (1-152 the 152 piece in Hamburg).
    Please let me know of which museums you have not got before the museum numbers from me.

    1 – 152 35 – 233 41 – 545
    1 – 215 35 – 255

    28 – 046 37 – 964
    28 – 047

    I hope this helps you a little bit more. In course of the next year you get photos from me of the 5 Munich (37= München) objects.
    All the best for you
