"Of the thirty-two caricatures contained in this book twenty-one have already appeared, in black and white form, in the pages of 'The Rattle'. I have thought, however, that the fact of their being enlarged, coloured, and printed on fine paper, would form sufficient excuse for their reproduction here. Nor have I hesitated to include the portraits of several old friends now departed, whose memory is still green in Shanghai. The remaining eleven pictures are published here for the first time. Five of the originals are the property of the Shanghai Race Club." (Preface). Very rare. Only two copies in OCLC.
