First edition. Octavo, pp xii, 307. Red cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. Complete with two large folding maps in the rear pocket. Illustrated with 40 plates in colour and black & white. Front endpaper has a decorative map of Hong Kong. The two maps are Hong Kong and the New Territories and Victoria and Kowloon Street Plan and Population Density.

 

British Government publication giving a detailed overview of Hong Kong in a relatively informal manner, including history, geography, people, customs, industry and trade and a final chapter on the colony’s outlook and purpose. A fascinating and detailed insight into Hong Kong in the immediate post-war years before the period of mass immigration from Mao’s chaotic China.
