In, and Round Yunnan Fou

£150.00

Product description

Published in 1922 by William Heinemann. Includes 42 illustrations, mainly black & white photographs.

This is a scarce first edition of a rare book about Kunming City (formerly known as Yunnan Fou) in Southern China.

Written by Gabrielle M Vassal who also wrote 'On and Off Duty in Annam'.

A fascinating book about the area around the City and Province and its people, in an time when few people would have travelled to the area.

In generally pretty good condition. The bright yellowy orange cover is a little discoloured, particularly on the spine with a mark left by a pen on the cover. Some yellowing to the end papers, but the pages are clean and unmarked. Very slight bowing to the boards (see photo 5). Minimal rubbing to the edges and corners
