"The author of this little book does not hope to convey to the western mind any very accurate idea of the real chinaman, -- nor of the Eurasian or half-breed, who comes upon the stage wherever the white man sets his foot or pitches his tent; but if the reader shall gather from its pages even a little of the wisdom of the Far East, it will be recompense for weary days and long sea voyages." [Foreword].
Scarce in the trade, with OCLC showing just one copy of the second issue, with the paste-over publisher cancel [indicating, perhaps, the Grafton Press went out of business? Tebbel is mute on the issue].
