Reader's note

This 1950s vintage book is three excellent titles in one volume! If you love travel stories and you're not familiar with W. Somerset Maugham, then you are in for a real treat with this one as the introduction to On a Chinese Screen shows - You come to the row of hovels that leads to the gate of the city. They are built of dried mud and so dilapidated that you feel a breath of wind will lay them flat upon the dusty earth from which they have been made. A string of camels, heavily laden, steps warily past you. They wear the disdainful air of profiteers forced to traverse a world in which many people are not so rich as they. A little crowd, tattered in their blue clothes, is gathered about the gate and it scatters as a youth in a pointed cap gallops up on a Mongolian pony. - one can almost taste the air from his descriptions! With its bright red cover, it will look wonderful on your bookshelf.
