Plant, Cornell: GLIMPSES OF THE YANGTZE GORGES. Shanghai, 1936. xv, 86 pp. with 49 b/w photographs, and 30 b/w text drawings by Ivon A. Donnelly, 1 in colour. 22x15 cm. Decorative cloth.
Having devoted the greater part of his life to studying and overcoming the dangers and difficulties which attend navigation of this river, Captain Plant is the ideal man to write a book on this subject. No alterations or additions to the text has been made in this new edition of the 1921 original. However, 4 photographs had to be omitted, the blocks having been mislaid and the original photographs from which they were being made being unavailable. The photographs are interesting and the b/w drawings by Donnelly are pleasing. A scarce work on the Gorges. 1936 reprint of the 1926 second edition. Some warping to covers, otherwise fine.
