Book Description Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc, E-49, 1928. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good+. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 8vo. Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc. 1928. 320 pgs. First Edition/First Printing. DJ has shelf-wear with pieces missing from the front and rear panel of the DJ and chipping present to the extremities. Bound in paper-covered boards. Light offsetting present to the FFEP. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards clean with no wear present. The Kai Lung books are really short-story collections, whose disparate, rambling tales are knitted together by framing narratives featuring the eponymous travelling storyteller. The third in Bramah's Kai Lung series of fantasy novels. "Kai Lung Unrolls His Mat", like the others in the series consists of thinly connected stories related by Kai Lung, concerning the adventures of the storyteller and his lady love Hwa-Mei versus the wicked but ever-smooth Mandarin Shan Tien and his despicable accomplice Ming-Shu. Kai Lung's adventures are related with humor and irony, his shrewdness and wisdom conveyed in euphemisms, paradoxes and parables. Bramah's droll writing style went a long way toward making the Kai Lung series so popular. The Kai Lung books are easily Bramah's greatest achievement; they're as worthy of their somewhat neglected place in the pantheon of British humour as the delightful comic trivia of Wodehouse. Kai Lung is a fictional character in a series of books by Ernest Bramah, consisting of The Wallet of Kai Lung (1900) , Kai Lung's Golden Hours (1922) , Kai Lung Unrolls His Mat (1928) , The Moon of Much Gladness (1932; published in the USA as The Return of Kai Lung) , Kai Lung Beneath the Mulberry Tree (1940) , Kai Lung: Six (1974) and Kai Lung Raises His Voice (2010). E-49; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 320 pages. Seller Inventory # 53221
