Lowe, H. Y: SOUVENIR HUNTING IN PEIPING. Pamphlets on China and Things Chinese.. Series PC No. 4. Peiping, 1946. 17 pp. 19x13 cm. Paper.
As the introduction states: 'One of the most fascinating and picturesque phases of a foreign visitor's sojourn in Peiping... is undoubtedly the hunting of souvenirs.' Couldn't agree more! Sections of cloisonned, the carving of lacquer, rugs etc. A small pamphlet and a rare little thing. The first time we have seen it.
