With frontispiece in colour, and 58 b/w plates after photographs. – First English edition. – ‘I have seen China and the Chinese with the eyes of a man of affairs; I have attempted to avoid, within the limits of the possible, the exaggerated optimism of certain writers on this country, – chiefly travellers and missionaries, – and I also have been careful not to fall into the spirit of systematic depreciation common to Europeans in referring to the Celestial Empire and its inhabitants.’ [Preface]. – Sides a bit chafed, name on upper paste down, else a very good copy
