Considered by many to be the world's best travel writer, Jan Morris has been visiting Hong Kong since the 1950's. This volume was published in 1988 before the british handed over the city to China. In her book Jan Morris gives a portrait of a burgeoning and incredibly vibrant city and she creates a lasting monument to it. Morris captures mood and feeling rather than just facts and she has the ability to transport the reader to her exotic destinations. This copy is in As New condition and was only opened to verify the signature. This true First Edition was published by the Franklin Library in 1988. It is bound in full red leather with raised hubs on the spine and gilt decoration on the spine and boards. The endpapers are marbled and the book has a bound-in satin bookmark and a perfect Jan Morris signature on the first blank page following the ffep. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
