About this Item

Book is clean and tightly bound, but does show wear to crown and tail of spine including a small piece missing at crown. Hinges are tight, but back one shows a repair made with Japan paper similar in color to endpapers. Hinge is strong and tight, but you can see cracking to pages through repair paper (see photo). Silver ornamentation is bright on both face and spine and there are no names or writing. Book provides a detailed history of New York City's China Town during the last decade of the 19th century. Text is plentiful and detailed and is augmented by both both small black and white photos and drawings of daily life.The author covers quite a few topics including governance, the Chinese restaurants and laundries, the seclusion of women, family life, music, opium smoking (includes a detailed drawing of the apparatus), playing fan-tan, Chinese lotteries, prostitution, slave girls, Chinese funerals, Chinese cemeteries and much more. A fascinating book of 329 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 24769

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
