Description

Never heard of William Dixon Bell? Darn, neither have I. I was hoping to find something out about him. Anyway, this little adventure story takes the young readers through the mystical land of Tibet before it became part of the Peoples' Republic of China. Just by the literary style, I am suspecting it was written by an American writer using a pseudonym. All the clichés are there as well as the attitudes existing towards Oriental cultures at the time. If anything, it's an interesting study in the approach used in entertaining young minds during that era.

The book is bound in orange board. The title is stamped on the front and the spine. The book is quite worn, having the spine chipped on both sides and the edges of the boards bumped and worn. The hinges are broken on the front and back and the spine is loose. The book is not warped or cocked and the pages are still bound tightly. Inside the first front end page before the title page, a previous owner kindly penned a philosophical poem, possibly as a salutation to someone. Overall, the printing is crisp and clear with a small stain on the occasional page.

The book was printed iin1938 by the Goldsmith Publishing Company of Chicago. The book is 251 pages long and is 8" X 5 1/4" in size.
