• A newly typeset edition of a work now long out of print and difficult to obtain • A fascinating companion volume on a modern-day trip to China and Korea • Will appeal to the tourist, amateur historian and armchair traveler alike The year is 1917. China is on the brink of civil war, but for the moment all is calm, and life goes on in the Middle Kingdom much as it has for thousands of years. Tourists must first travel by steamer to British Hong Kong - a journey of some two weeks from North America and up to a month from London. China has yet to establish its first tourism agency, so the intrepid visitor must rely on Archie Bell's book to make his or her way around. And what a trip Bell takes us on! From Hong Kong to Canton, Macau, Shanghai, Hangzhou, on to Peking and further to Korea, the Hermit Kingdom, then under Japanese rule. The Spell of China is truly a trip back in time; a spellbinding journey for the modern tourist, amateur historian and armchair traveler alike.
Archie Bell (1877-1943) was an American drama and music critic, journalist, world traveler and author.
