An amazing amount of information in a book which measures 4-1/2"x6-1/2", but is also 2-1/2" thick with 1504 pages. Wonderful crisp, clean fold-out maps and charts throughout, plus an atlas at the back of the book in full color. Book sports red board swith no bumps to corners and a handsome orange top exterior edge as per design, a red bound-in ribbon marker, and map endpapers. Only faults are small tear to both outer bottom corners of dustjacke, former owener's name half-hidden under front endflap. and isolated edge wear bottom front edge. Jacket will arrive in brand new mylar cover. Much history, but also practical information on customs, languages, transportation, clothing, postal and telephone systems, how to eat in Chinese restaurants, cigarettes and spirits, entertainments, hotels etc. An insightful look at what seems now like the old China. Delightful!
