The binding is smooth black cloth with red and gilt accents. And this baby is rokc solid tight and clean, save for slight dusting to top of text blockand a bit of toning to endpapers. Pictorial unclipped jacket is nice but does have light to moderate edgewear and 3 half inch edge tears which would be simple to repair to near-invisibilality. $3.00 price intact on front flap. A wise and witty modern Chinese, well aware of both East and West, offers Americans a way of life distilled out of what he and the Chinese sages of thirty centuries have learned about the salt and flavor and tang of daily living.
