(Chinese Silk Painting)
Picture Story of Mu Lan
China: n.p., 1924. Hardcover. Near fine. 8vo. Accordion book bound in Asian style. Brown silk cloth boards, lettering panel on the upper board. Title page in Chinese and English. This is followed by 10 sets of two pages, the right hand page with the story of Mu Lan in Chinese and English, and the left hand with a painting on silk illustrating the story. The title in Chinese is laid-down on the front board: Huamulan Quantu; i.e., Complete Pictures of Hua Mulan. The title page misspells 'Picture' aas 'Picturd'. The silk boards are worn at the edges else this is a fine copy. This is the story of the young woman who enlisted in the army in place of her father, keeping her sex concealed until the end, when she was rewarded for her courageous acts. Basis for the movie by Disney. The corners and edges of the boards are worn in places, but the text block is in fine condition. Scarce.
