Outlaws of The Marsh

By Shi Nai'an and Luo Guanzhong (translated by Sidney Shapiro)

1980 - Beijing - Foreign Languages Press

8.5" by 5"; (ix) 559pp; (iv) 561-1133pp; (iv) 1135-1605pp.

DETAILS

A English translation of Outlaws of The Marsh, complete in three volumes and with original unclipped dustwrappers and slipcases.

Considered to be one of the Four Great Clasicall Novels of Chinese literature, this hugely influential work tells the story of a group of outlaws granted amnesty by the Song Dynasty, and subsequenly hired to fight invading armies on their behalf.

Published by the Foreign Languages Press of Beijing, this translation is also notable for being an early export from the city following the closure of the country by Mao Zedong, and is an interesting document of Xeng Diopeng's liberalisation of both Chinese economy and society.

CONDITION

In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing and original unclipped dustwrapper with slipcases. Externally smart, there is some minor wear to the extremities, as well as some tide markings to the boards of volumes one and three. The dustwrappers are slightly chippped and lightly discoloured to the joints, and the slipcases are marked in areas, with some fraying and loss to the backstrip panel. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are bright and clean throughout. Overall: NEAR FINE in NEAR FINE dustwrappers and VERY GOOD slipcases.
