WU, Aitchen K. Turkistan Tumult. London, Methuen, [1940].

8vo. Original grey cloth, with the rarely seen colour-printed dust-wrappers (not price-clipped, minor marginal flaws), map endpapers; pp. xv, 279; plates after photographs; a very good copy.
First edition. Wu travelled in Chinese Turkestan (Sinkiang) in 1932. He was present at Urumchi during the revolution by General Ma in 1933. 'More thrilling than any novel, this book is in fact a valuable contribution to history - the hardly credible story of the clash of religions and empires in the very edge of the known world' (blurb inside front flap).
