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.
