Book Description Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston & New York, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Lucille Douglass (illustrator). Circular gold and silver design on red board covers w/red cloth spine; 464pp; frontis; illus; fold-out map of China in the rear. B&W illustrations by Lucille Douglass throughout. The author writes at the time of publication, "China is usually treated by the West from a purely academic point of view; that is, her art, literature and archaeology are studied as are similar subjects connected with dead civilizations; but China is alive, and she is virile; moreover, her ancient beliefs and thoughts are indissolubly knit into the life of her people. Therefore I have tried to make the country, as I know it, seem a living entity to my readers." Ascough was, at the time she wrote the book, a member of the North China Branch Royal Asiatic Society. The book shows wear at the top of the cloth spine and the edges and corners of the cover boards; front cover at the frontis page splitting at cutter but still intact. [WAH-1083].

Book Description Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1925. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dustjacket. Drawings by Lucille Douglass (illustrator). Publication undated, but a printed postscript on the dedication page is dated 1925, and a gift bookplate on the front endpaper is dated 1926. Apart from the bookplate and a spot of removed adhesive on the front endpaper, a little mild toning through the margins, and a clear drip spot at the head edge of the page block not affecting margins, the pages are clean; the binding is mildly relaxed, but secure, the quarter red cloth somewhat darkened along the spine and bearing a few scattered, pale spots, some softening and rubbing at the spine ends, and dimming of the gilt titles, the paper-covered boards worn through at the corners and showing chips and wear around the edges and a few scattered scuffs on the surfaces and scratching on the rear, as well as a school's gilt seal affixed to the front, but the cover remains overall sound. 464pp. w/index, fold-out map.

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
