Dollar, Robert: MEMOIRS OF ROBERT DOLLAR. San Francisco, 1921. iv, 144 pp. Frontispiece and 42 b/w plates, many full page. 24x16 cm. Cloth.
Robert Dollar owned a steamship company that plied the routes from North America across the Pacific to various sea and river ports in Asia and, in particular, China at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. These are his privately-published memoirs. Dollar travelled extensively on business and his travel impressions are here recorded. He ventured much into China and the work is accompanied by interesting photographs, many fullpage, of Shanghai, Chungking, the Yangtze Gorges, Hankow and other places in China and Asia. The work has some unobtrusive worming, otherwise fine.
