Through Hidden Shensi


Numerous illustrations from photographs taken by the author, and a map.
This is a fascinating account of the author's trip to Shensi, a little-known province in the northwest corner of China, where he was sent as an agent for the American Famine Fund for Shensi to investigate famine conditions and report on them.

The book provides a wonderful description of China and its people at the beginning of the 20th century. The book includes chapters on the author's trip from Peking to Paoting, Tai Yuan, the land of Yau and Shun, Tung Kwan and the original river, the old race of Shensi, Mandarins and their methods, Sian and the Sianese, Shensi monuments, through Hupeh in a junk, and much more.

In green boards with a faded orange spine and gold titling. The spine is little faded with brown colour, some bumpings to the cloth. Internally the book is in good condition being tight and clean. The second front free endpaper has two inscriptions and one reads "Moir Duncan from the Author"
