Book Description Johnson Publications Ltd, London, 1972. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 16 illustrations / Plates (illustrator). First Edition. Dust jacked complete, unclipped, rubbed area. Black cloth with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership inscription. 16 illustrations / Plates. 208 pages clean and tight. George Watt was born in Belfast, British Northern Ireland. This was before the days of widespread Local Authority Education Grants; his education , was accordingly as an apprentice at Harland and Wolff, the shipbuilding firm, the Belfast College of Advanced Technology-and in `the University of Life'. As with so many of his countrymen, he sought work abroad-first in West Africa as a Government Officer in Technical Education; later with the firm of Vickers-Zimmer as a constructional engineer. It was in this capacity that he worked first in the Soviet Union at Chernigov in Ukraine. Then at Lanchow, `the atomic city' in Northern China. During his time in Chernigov he contacted the Ukrainian Underground Movement and returned from this country with valuable icons from St. Sophia Cathedral, Kiev. During his time in China he became caught up in the "Cultural Revolution" and was in Peking at the time of the sacking of the British Mission in 1967. Here he was arrested and charged with being a `spy'. He appeared before a People's Court in Lanchow, as a consequence of which he spent three years as a prisoner in the Ideological Remoulding Prison in Peking. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 130207
