Uncommon Chinese Imprint from San Francisco

[Confucius’ Great Art of Equality] Kongzi zhi ping deng da yi

Notes: The author spent some years in the United States as the editor of the San Francisco-based Confucian Digest. She wrote frequently on the relevance of Confucianism to overseas Chinese. Prior to the Second World War, relatively few books by Asian women were published in the US.

This book seems to be a slightly expanded (two pages) version of a 1929 Chinese book of the same name (a comparison with a digital copy suggests the first 86 pages are the same in both books).

Text in Chinese. 88 pages. 4-1/4 by 7 inches.

OCLC: 62675722 (Princeton)

Edition + Condition: First edition. Short tears to wrappers, else very good or better.

Publication: [San Francisco]: [Jinshan (a.k.a Gold Mountain, a.k.a. San Francisco) Institute of Chinese Studies] Jinshan guo xue han shou xue yuan, 1930 (Minguo 19).
