唐纳德·曼尼的50张全页印版,其中38幅是照相凹版印刷,12幅是手工上色的银明胶版。每个图版都附有一页由凯利中校编写的文字,文字下方有由H.G.甘迪中校绘制的素描插图。第二十六版有整齐的钢笔注释。一张30 x 21.3cm银明胶照片疑为门尼的原始照片,被散插在五张峡谷的快照(9.7 x 14.5cm)中。每张快照都用铅笔在背面做了整齐地标注。

 

前扉页有藏书票和题字,偶有斑点,书脊上下有轻微磨损,下书口稍被碰撞,有一条几乎不可见的折痕贯穿下书口。三页书边空白处稍有污渍。

 

精美的彩色图案编织丝质书封,斜角边,原卡纸套盒一角被撕破。套盒曾对书起过很好的保护作用,书本身和照片都品相良好精美。限量发行1000册,此为编号283。上海,别发洋行,1926年。

 

收藏流转:此书原为埃里克·普赖斯先生藏品,由其后人继承。埃里克·普莱斯,英国人,1925-1928年在中国生活,就职于太古洋行。

 

The Grandeur of the Gorges.

 Fifty Photographic Studies, With Descriptive Notes, of China's Great Waterway, The Yangtze Kiang, Including Twelve Hand-Coloured Prints. 
Mennie, Donald. (From Photographs by). 


50 full page tipped-in plates by Donald Mennie of which 38 are photogravures and 12 are hand coloured silver gelatin plates. Each plate has an accompanying page of text by Lieutenant Commander Carey and is illustrated with a sketch by Lieutenant Colonel H.G. Gandy underneath the text. Plate XXVI has a neat ink note.

 

A large format 30 x 21.3cm silver gelatin photograph which appears likely to be an original Mennie print is loosely inserted together with five snapshots (9.7 x 14.5cm) showing scenes taken along the Gorges. Each of the snapshots is neatly captioned on the reverse in pencil. 

 

Bookplate and inscription front endpapers, some occasional spotting, corners and head and tail of spine little rubbed, lower edge very lightly bumped causing some barely visible creasing along the lower edges throughout. Stain in blank outer margin three leaves. Excellent copy in stunning colour pictorial woven silk boards, bevel edges, presented in original card box torn at one corner. The box has given excellent protection over the years and the volume and the photographs are in excellent condition. A stunning copy. Number 283 of a limited edition of 1000 copies. Watson. Kelly & Walsh. Shanghai. 1926. 

Provenance: From the collection of Mr Eric Price and then by descent. Eric Price, an Englishman, who worked initially for Butterfield & Swire, in China in 1925-28.
