Title: The House of Baltazar
Publisher: New York: John Lane Company, 1919
Publication Date: 1919
Edition: First Edition.
A curiously Sinophilic retort to the literature of Yellow Peril: a mild mannered scholar and "modern Rip Van Winkle" comes out of twenty years seclusion with his erudite comrade Quong Ho to find the world changed by war. Owes more to Montesquieu's Persian Letters than to Sax Rohmer. A very good copy in a chipped but still attractive copy of the scarce pictorial dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 12167
