What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce
The first edition of this work. A scarce work. A fascinating and unique history of Shanghai, China, a detailed look unto the city. This was the first comprehensive history of Shanghai in English. Illustrated with two folding maps, and twenty-six plates. Collated, complete. Written by C. A. Montalto de Jesus, who also wrote 'Historic Macau'.
In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. Fading to the spine. A little bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. A few light marks to the boards, a little heavier to the rear board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
