About This Item

N.P. [Shanghai?]: N.P. [The Yellow Hall?], n.d. [ca. 1940?]. Illustrated by Title and 20 hand colored pages (30 separate illustrations, 13 captioned). Limited signed edition. "Of this book only a limited and numbered edition has been printed. Each book is hand-colored and signed by the Artist. This is book number 517." . Gold silk bamboo brocade, accordion fold (or concertina or zigzag fold) housed in a custom box by KTB of Old Working Books & Bindery of acid free Hewit cloth and calf lined with gold/multi color oriental floral paper and Japanese tissue. Hand-dyed looped silk ribbon by Ramune Jauniskis (Boston) and Chinese coin closure on both boards which tie into a bow with no loose ends. 4to (27x19.5cm). pp. 22 double leaves . Very Good/No jacket, as issued/As New. Edge toning to some cartoons, colors still brilliant, several foxed spots to pages, light rubbing to fabric folds. An "oh mosaic" of 'Shanghailander' life observed by Jewish-Austrian cartoonist who lived and worked in the refuge of Shanghai 1930-47. World Catalog states 3 editions were published in 1940. This is equivalent to state A with the "Limited..." statement and number on last page with last name signature on title. I have seen a copy 550, but exact numbers are unknown. A collection of his works was later published in Austria in 1983 as China gemalt - Chinesische Zeitgeschichte in Bildern Friedrich Schiff by Gerd Kaminski.
