Shanghai. Commercial Press Limited. 1924. Stock ID #169969

12 issues bound in one volume. Numerous black & white images throughout. Fully rebound in Japanese silk covered boards, new head and tail bands and endpapers. Leather title label lettered in gilt. iv + 1048pp. The text block pages are browned, some pages have been repaired with Japanese paper, lower corner cut from two leaves with a little loss of text, some occasional underlining in coloured pencil, 6.5 x 5cm but a very good firm copy. Extremely scarce

This edition is a bit of a conundrum, the pagination is continuous, however the dates are not. January and February issues are Volume X Nos.1 & 2, 1924, followed by March 1920 Volume VI No. 3, April 1921,Volume VII No. 4 and May 1921 Volume VII No. 5. It then continues with the remainder of 1924 from June through December followed by an 87 page Tenth Anniversary Supplement and Index.

Full of editorials, contemporary news snippets, current events and literary references as well as exercises in translation and how to master English and a bilingual monthly episode of the Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith. The news content is also interesting with short news pieces such as: Tea Bank to be Opened in Shanghai; Long Distance Telephone Between Shanghai and Hangchow; German Goods Barred in Australia included, as well as chapters on English grammar and other topics. Very interesting collection of issues of this scarce periodical.
