Hardcover in publisher’s non price-clipped dust-jacket. 300 pages. Double page map of 18th century China. Bibliography, Index. First edition, first printing with full number line. A brilliantly reconstructed tale of conspiracy and revolution in early 18th century China, which provides as much insight into the plot and plotters as it does into the governance and centralization of the Ming dynasty. No previous ownership marks. A clean, square, fresh and unmarked copy, like new. Fine in a fine dust-jacket.
