今天看了VOA常速的文章里面有些问题望指教
Charles Venable, the deputy director of the Cleveland Museum collection, traveled to China for the opening at the Beijing World Art Museum at the end of May. He says the Chinese audiences were excited to see the works of artists whose names are magic in the world of western art: Matisse, Monet, Modigliani, Renoir, Rodin, Van Gogh.

"I was surprised how many people from the Chinese public who were there for the opening really have read books on Modigliani, even if they haven't seen them," he said. "These are very well educated individuals and some of them, in fact, have been reading things in Western languages, particularly English. Because they do not have that much literature on Western art that has been translated into Chinese, so our catalogue is one of the first big survey books that is in Chinese."

里面的survey books应该怎么翻译好呢谢谢啦http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lan ... /content_620092.htm原文网址

survey course noun                                                
       
                       
ˈsurvey ˌcourse [countable]
American EnglishSEC a university course that gives an introduction to a subject for people who have not studied it before

这里估计a survey book (the catalogue) is a guidance book that gives introduction or other basic knowledge to people who're not familiar with those works"

由于没有许多关于西方艺术的读物被翻译成汉语,因此我们的艺术作品介绍中文目录成为了一本重要的介绍这方面的入门书籍。

调查表 =questionnaire


or  question sheet, survey form, opinion poll; test, exam, examination, quiz; Medicine questionary.

but not a 'survey book"


也有调查‘书’的意思(如下),不过方在这里不好理解:

survey:
a general description or report about a particular subject or situation:
a survey of modern English literature

我想这句表达的意思是:中国这方面的书很少,而此次为了展览会而翻译过来的cataloge(估计是画册+介绍)竟然成为了中文西方艺术介绍为数不多的详细资料之一。
