Robert Bartlett, Plymouth, 1991. Inscribed by author on front free end page as follows: "To Editor Wiseman Seeker for lux et veritas". Laid in is a typed and signed letter from the author that reads as follows: "August 23, 1991 Dear Editor: Wiseman: I am enclosing a copy of my new book on China, hoping that the alumni magazine may mention it. Yale has had important contacts in China and I hope that we can reestablish some of them. Sincerely yours, [signed] Robert M. Bartlett". Below that on the letter in what appears to be another handwriting is "Yale Divinity 1924". (Note: Until recently, Carter Wiseman was Editor of the Yale Alumni Magazine.) Book is in Very Good+ condition: pages are a little wavy. Dust jacket is in Very Good+ condition: slight rubbing on edge; two light scratches; no chips or tears; not price clipped. A label affixed to the rear of the dust jacket says, "The Obstinate Illusion is an evocative love letter to a world that has vanished - China in the 1920s and 1930s with all the passion, color, strife, and beauty of a unique period of China's turbulent history. The narrative proceeds inevitably to the emergence of Communist rule. The tale is an irrestible tour de force. - Harrison E. Salisbury"

Ting Ling: Her Life and Work, Jun-mei, Chang
5 Ting Ling: Her Life and Work Jun-mei, Chang
Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China Institute of International Relations 1978 Soft Cover Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Institute of International Relations, Taipei, Taiwan, 1978. Softbound. Book is in Good condition: edge wear; 1" tear along spine between spine and rear cover; rubbing on and along spine; cover wear; binding is tight and pages are clean; not ex-library. From the Foreword: "The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has constantly emphasized the idea that literature and art are political tools that can be employed to 'educate' the people, change their ideology, and molding the 'new Communist man'. Because of this, authors have to write within strictly prescribed conventions, and are subjected to close government scrutiny. Work too intimately connected with freedom is censored; and, as a result, the first people to run into trouble during the numerous struggles that have taken place in mainland China since the Yenan Rectification Campaign have been intellectuals and artists. Among authors who have been purged by the CCP, Ting Ling serves as a typical example. She was born before the 1911 Revolution, and grew up during a historical period in which Chinese society and government were undergoing vigorous changes. Her early writings gave expression to the feelings of intellectuals, and of women in particular -- their feelings of frustration and distress -- when facing the historical changes. Her writings attracted large numbers of young people who were still unsure of themselves, and, because of this, she became quite famous. Her keen individualism, and her freedom-seeking spirit, were incompatible with the basic nature of Communism. Her cynical criticism of old traditions and outdated morality, however, won praise from left wing authors."

6 Warning of War : A Novel of the North China Marines Brady, James
New York, New York, U.S.A. Thomas Dunne Books 2002 0312280181 / 9780312280185 First Edition/1st Printing Hard Copy Very Good+ Very Good+ 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Inscribed By Author
Thomas Dunne Books, New York, 2002. Hard copy. Inscribed by author on front flyleaf as follows: "To Frank - Happy Birthday - [signed] James Brady". Stated 1st edition. 1st printing. Book is in Very Good+ condition: edges a little dirty; light general wear; binding is tight and square, and pages are clean and bright. Not a remainder. Dust jacket is in Very Good+ condition: rubbing on edge at folds; no chips or tears. From the dust jacket: "Late November of 1941. Half the world is at war and with the other half about to join in, a thousand U.S. Marines stand sentinel over the last days of an uneasy truce between ourselves and the Imperial Japanese Army in chaotic North China. By November 27, FDR is convinced Japan is about to launch a military action. Washington doesn't know where, isn't sure precisely when. But the Cabinet is sufficiently alarmed that War Secretary Henry Stimson and Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox are authorized to send an immediate and coded 'warning of war' to American bases and units in harm's way. In Shanghai two cruise ships are chartered and 800 armed American Marines of the 4th Regiment (serving in China since the Boxer Rebellion) are marched through the great port city with enormous pomp and circumstance and embarked for Manila. Another two hundred Marines, unable to reach Shanghai, and serving in small garrisons and posts from Peking to Mongolia and the Gobi Desert, are caught short by this 'warning of war'. This is their story. Of how a detachment of American Marines marooned in North China as war erupts, set out on an epic march through hostile territory in an attempt to fight their way out of China and, somehow, rejoin their Corps for the war against Japan. James Brady dazzles us once again with a stunning and unflinching look at America at war. Warning of War is a moving tribute to sheer courage, determination, and Marine Corps discipline, and is a wonderful celebration of America in one of its darkest but finest hours."
