This is a calligraphy banner with a colophon on a Chinese ink landscape painting on silk. I don't know the date, but I'm assuming it's Qing. The painting is a vertical scroll - mountain, houses, river beneath - with two or three sets of scene-setting characters.
What does this say? Any date? Thanks!

I'd like to re-read the Chinese classical novel Dream of the Red Chamber (The Story of the Stone), but I'd like to know more about the world it's set in first. What are some recommendations for books about daily life and clothing during the Qing dynasty, particularly during the 1700s? [more inside]
