Descripción

468 p. 19 cm. 187 b&w illustrations. Blue cloth hardcover with gold print. Moderate wear and soiling with bumped corners. Hinges repaired internally. This work by American missionary Hampden Colt DuBose contains a wealth of information on the religions of China s he saw them. A missionary of the USA Presbyterian Mission, he and his wife Pauline arrived in Soochow in 1872 and stayed 38 years until his death in 1910. He is best remembered to day as the founder of the Anti-Opium League which sought to publish facts about opium use and turn public opinion against the opium trade. He even enlisted the support of President Theodore Roosevelt. Eventually a petition was signed by over 1000 China missionaries and presented to the Chinese Emperor, which led to the prohibition of the the drug's trade and use. N° de ref. de la librería 119219
