About this Item

This is a Riverside Press, Cambridge, publication. Original red paper covers with a black cloth spine, gilt lettering on the spine, black Chinese symbols on the front cover. All the edges of the cover have suffered; they are worn and scuffed and the back cover is stained. Everything between the covers is in very good condition. The poems were first translated by Florence Ayscough who here writes a long Introduction; then the rough translations were polished by the poet Amy Lowell into versions published here along with her Preface to the volume. 95 pages of front matter and 227 pages of text. Tipped in the front (as if a frontispiece) is a two page folded map of China identified thusly: "Map of China showing in Black, the Present Divisions and names, in Red, the Ancient Districts &c. referred to in the Poems." One added feature: in a very careful way, someone has written in ink a different version of one of the poems (p. 74) below the version published in this volume. There is a very small and very old bookseller's label on the back paste down: La Librairie Francaise, Pekin (Chine). Bookseller Inventory # 001572
