First edition first print hardback of THE SILENT TRAVELLER IN EDINBURGH by Chiang Yee and published by Methuen & Co Ltd in 1948. Signed by Yee in both Chinese and English on the front endpaper. Previous owner inscription to inside front board.

The book is in good condition (cream cloth boards with green lettering to spine and front) with bumping to corners, fraying to the top and bottom edges of the spine, fingernail split to top spine edge, age spotting to inside front board and endpaper, tanning to page edges. The book is in a fair unclipped dust jacket which is slightly tatty with light creasing, age related staining, some loss to the head of the spine and small tears here and there. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Chiang Yee was, in his own words, 'dazzled' by the Scottish capital. From the Meadows to Princes Street, from Arthur's Seat to Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle, he paints an unforgettable picture of the city and its people in the 1940s. Writing with wry humor, he broadens our perspective of familiar sights and customs, introduces us to Confucian philosophy and Chinese poetry, corrects cultural misconceptions and encourages us to appreciate life. Illustrated throughout with Yee's exquisite paintings, sketches and Chinese calligraphy.
