Condition: Very Good/Good

New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1945. Translated from the Chinese by Evan King. Peking, a thousand years old and more is the setting of this modern novel of China by one of its best-known writers. "Rickshaw Boy" is Chinese in its plot, characters, and atmosphere. The translation of Evan King, an American who lived in China for many years and knows it people and their language, is a remarkable achievement.

Baldridge art begins as you open the book .... illustrated two-page scenic spread endpapers.... a scenic sketch title page, chapter head sketches and many other sketches throughout the book. This bookclub copy remains most respectable..  Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.
