About This Item

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. It is appropriate that Rickshaw Boy should be illustrated by Cyrus LeRoy Baldridge. No other American illustrator has experienced so intimate and varied association with the Far East. Art and book lovers are already familiar with the wonderful illustrations of Hajii Baba of Ispahan, etc. For a year Baldridge lived in Peking sketching the life of its colorful streets - the life described in this book. 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. Cyrus LeRoy Baldridge Illustrator + Lau Shaw Chinese Novelist + Evan King Translator + Chinese Fiction + Art + Peking Fiction + Far East + NOISBN.
