A Wayfarer in China, Impressions of a Trip Across West China and Mongolia

Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin.

Hardcover. Very good. Early reprint (title page undated, copyright page states "Published, February 1913." 338 pp, indexed and illustrated (including double-page map), in original blue cloth binding. No dust jacket. Light shelfwear to boards; binding sound, text clean, with the exception of some foxing to the first few leaves. Previous owner's raised stamp on front free endpaper. As described in contemporary review in the Missionary Herald, "the earlier part of Miss Kendall's journey brings out vividly the life of such unfamiliar regions as French Tonking and the provinces of Yunnan and Szechuan in West China, and includes such unusual experiences as a peek into Lolo Land, a stop at Tachieniu--gateway to Tibet--and a remarkable sojourn at the monastery of Omei Shan, that ancient and mysterious mountain shrine of Buddhist China. The middle part of the journey follows the more usual highways, down the Yangtze and north to the Wall, but the route becomes adventurous again as it crosses the Gobi Desert and pushes northward through Mongolia to Siberia."
