Hong Kong - Xianggang (1988)

Jan MORRIS

London: Viking
First edition
1988
VG+/VG+
B3383

First edition. Octavo, pp320. Blue cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to spine, in original dust jacket, un-clipped (£14.95 net).

 

This is one the most informative and entertaining books written about the great sweep of Hong Kong history. Quoting from the front flap: “Jan Morris, travel writer and historian, combined both disciplines to describe Hong Kong as it is today, to recall its past and to explore its meaning. By alternating chapters of theme or description with evocations of particular historical periods, she lays out for our inspection a complete colony, start to finish”.

 

Book is in Very Good Plus condition with slight browning to edges of pages; jacket is in Very Good Plus condition. Uncommon to find this book in such nice condition.
