About this Item

First edition. With a large folding colour map at the front. 8vo, publisherís original ginger cloth, the upper cover double ruled in black and featuring a centrally ornamented Chinese Dragon in gilt, the spine ruled and lettered in gilt. [ix], 436. A reading copy, sans map and with hinge separated at the rear. Boulgerís history of China from the early ages and the First Dynasty right up to the Regency reign of Kwangsu and the Chinese social, cultural and political system at the close of the 19th century. It was the authorís opinion that British interests in Asia rested on good and stable relations with China, and to that end he considered it important that westerners learn more about the complex and ancient history of this huge nation. The authorís first work on the subject was a massive 3 volume history published in 1884. This book is an entirely rewritten history. Its emphasis was on more recent history.
