Título: RED CARPET TO CHINA
Editorial: London: The Travel Book Club by arrangement with Longmans, Green & Co. 1958
Año de publicación: 1958
FIRST EDITION. 16mo., pp. ix, 278. Original buff cloth sound. Dust jacket worn on edges. Michael Croft's founding of the National Youth Theatre in London led to his being invited 'out of the blue' on an international youth delegation to China in 1957. The experience led to this book, an entertaining account of his twenty thousand miles of travel on the communist circuit, only a few years after the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. The party travelled through Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Russia, and his book reveals him to be a keen observer with an infectious sense of humour. N° de ref. de la librería 10026

Descripción de la librería: We specialise in travel, adventure and exploration books published between about 1900 and 1960, loosely referred to as post-imperialist travel writing. Although most books are the first-hand experiences of their authors, we have included books of general interest about a particular area or incident and autobiographies and biographies by and of famous travellers or adventurers. You will also find some books we consider of particular merit outside our somewhat arbitrary date range. Mark Culme-Seymour Proprietor
