About this Item

Extremely scarce Dutch Orientalia. These short stories set in China are illustrated with five lovely, elaborately hand-colored lithographed plates including two scenes of children?one in which they are blowing bubbles and one in which they are fishing out of a boat with a carved dragon prow. The first plate is very faintly marked "H.J. Backer," but the illustrations are otherwise unattributed. No holdings of this book are listed in WorldCat or NUC Pre-1956; the only other copy we were able to find is held by the Dutch national library. 12mo (18.8 cm, 7.4"). vii, [1], 135 (lacking pp. 33/34 & 39/40), [1 (blank)] pp.; 5 col. plts. Not in Brinkman. Contemporary cartonn? binding covered in decorative printed paper, shown above right; spine showing a small undarkened area where label is now lacking. Front joint tender. Lacking pp. 33/34 and 39/40; some signatures loosening. Pages with a very few small spots, otherwise clean and pleasing. Bookseller Inventory # 4188
