Birrell, Anne (translator & editor)

An Anthology of Early Chinese Love Poetry, Translated with Annotations and an Introduction, introduction, notes, chronological table, location map, appendix giving background to poets and poems, index of titles, xxx & 374 pp, maroon boards in d/w, spine of d/w a little sunned, otherwise in almost-new condition, George Allen & Unwin 1982

23.2 x 15.1 cm, 770g, ISBN 0 04895 026 2

See below the description from the dustwrapper flap.

An important and well-reviewed anthology, subsequently published as a Penguin Classics paperback, though Penguin have allowed their edition to go out of print.  The book is now available only as a Routledge hardback library edition at an eye-watering £115.00, or as an e-book at £40.49.

This original George Allen & Unwin edition is a proper sewn hardback and so much easier to read (and will last much longer) than a paperback.
