A very attractive series of photographs published by the owners of the China Mutual Steam Navigation Company. The publication date can be deduced partly from the letterhead on the note-paper presenting the album as the Ocean Steam Ship Company (another Holt line) is Limited, something which did not happen until 1902; and the China Mutual Line ceased in 1911.
First edition. Landscape folio (28.5 x 21 cm,) [iii] (preface) pp., 23 tipped-in sepia photographs, captioned below image, each with accompanying leaf of descriptive text, original buff card wrappers with large photographic image to upper cover, light edge wear, a very good example.
