About This Item

Toronto: Lester & Orpen Dennys/Virago Modern Classics, 1979. VERY GOOD copy, some shelf wear, age discoloration, former owner signature on first page, otherwise a clean unmarked copy.

Fryniwayd Tennyson Jesse, a great-niece of Alfred Lord Tennyson, began a career as a journalist in 1911 and was one of the few women to report from the front during World War I.
"First published in 1929, this prodigious novel of adventure and romance matches the tales of Kipling and Stevenson, Buchan and Maugham. Based on a true historical incident, The Lacquer Lady is set in the 1880s in the gem of the city of Mandalay during the last years of the opulent, decaying kingdom of Burma."
