Reader's note

An attractive first edition of The Peach Blossom Forest and other Chinese Legends by Robert Gittings & Jo Manton in an eye-catching patterned dust-jacket design! This book holds an enchanting collection of short stories. There is a haunting charm in this memorable collection, who will forget the folly of the last Queen of the Chou dynasty, and her attempt to devise a better occupation than tearing up pieces of valuable silk in her boredom, or the tale of Han Kan, young drawer of horses in the dust, who became an honoured painter at the Imperial court? The Peach Blossom Forest is like a rare piece of embroidery, which preserves for us in its well-wrought pattern all the enchantment of the ancient Chinese story tellers.
