[CHINA] LEWIS, Elizabeth Foreman (author). Kurt WIESE (illustrator). Ho-Ming Girl of New China. London; George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. 1935.

Large 8vo. Original black cloth pictorially blocked and lettered to spine and upper cover in yellow, double-page pictorial endpapers, intriguingly preserved in two identical pictorial dustwrappers; with pictorial title, coloured frontispiece. 3 further coloured plates, and chapter-headings, full-page plates and tailpieces in line; a fine copy, both externally and internally, with a small neat ownership name to half-title, protected in two wrappers, both priced 6/-, the first with some light soiling, darkening to spine, and some edge chipping; the second understandably clean with thumbnail chip to bottom joint at head of spine.
First UK edition, first published the previous year in the US. Lewis and Wiese's earlier collaboration Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze won the Newbery Award in 1933.
