New York: Fleming H. Revell Company, (1901). First printing. Black and white photographs, illustrations. Cloth over boards with printed paper sides. Tall octavo. 176 pages. Minor rubs to board extremities, shallow bumps, and a bit of sun fading along extreme bottom edge of upper board. Jacket has chipping at heel of spine and a 1 1/2" triangular chip from head of spine. There is a hole in spine near heel, about the size of corn kernel. Neat prior gift inscription dated 1901 at top fore corner of front free endpaper. Overall clean and sound. Very good in a good plus dust jacket.
Beautiful depiction of child life in China, revealing something of their nursery's, school rooms, and playgrounds. Numerous photographs throughout, along with old prints, to illustrated nearly every page. Printed page backgrounds give alternating pairs of pink and blue borders to the text and images.
