Miln, Louise Jordan RICE
New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1930. First U.S. edition. Hardcover. A beautiful, fine, fresh copy in bright yellow cloth lettered in black; in a mildly age-darkened and lightly rubbed printed dust jacket.
Late career novel by the American writer best known, perhaps, for her novelization of H.M. Vernon and Harold Owen's play, MR. WU. Like Pearl Buck, Miln was drawn to Asian subjects in both her novels and non-fiction. Lovely example of this title.
