New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1901. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Two volumes, 8vo. Bound in original canary yellow cloth on boards and lettered in black. Illustrated full color endpapers. Previous owner signature on blank in volume I. Both volumes are extremely clean, bright and solid. Several full color plates and dozens of full page plates. Numerous in-text plates and maps as well. An important look at China at the turn of the century as many foreign nations, notably the US, Russian and Japan, all had a presence as the Boxer Rebellion came to a boil. A lovely example of this important first hand historical record.
