Calls, Sounds, and Merchandise... BHT105


Calls, Sounds, and Merchandise of the Peking Street Peddlers was originally published in the 1930s. The author, Samuel Victor Constant, was a permanent resident in Peking and was rather familiar with Chinese folklore. This revised version is written in an easy and witty style. The literay quotations are full and accurate. The line drawing illustrations are all based on original pictures and relevant materials. Some illustrations are historical photographics, which transport the reader back in time. This book is rich in illustrations and tones, as well as texts, and vividly depicts the local conditions and customs of old Peking. When reading this pictorial record, one can almost hear the calls and sounds of those Peking street peddlers.
