One of the earliest examples of color woodblock printing — which originated in China — now belongs to The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, the institution announced Thursday.

Prominent publisher, calligrapher and seal-carver Hu Zhengyan first published “The Ten Bamboo Studio Collection of Calligraphy and Pictures” in 1633.

Donors purchased the first edition in honor of The Huntington President Steven Koblik, who will retire on June 30, 2015.
