Complete with the half-title and the final leaf with the printer's slug showing that the book was printed in Hong Kong. The book is fairly widely held in the institutions but is uncommon in the trade. Appendix A. concerns the means of transport from Europe and America to China and Japan; and Appendix B. consists of mileage tables. The 26-p. Appendix C. at the back is a "Catalogue of books on China (other than philological) published on China and Japan in the English language."
