The Silent Traveller in New York
Yee, Chiang

Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1950, first edition. Foxing to page edges, endpapers and dustjacket; inscription in blue pen at top of inner title page; dustjacket torn with piece missing to top of spine/back cover, other chipping to dustjacket, mended internally with brown paper and covered with plastic to protect.

Distinguished author, artist, calligrapher, and poet Chiang Yee wrote and illustrated a dozen Silent Traveller books, from 1937-1972. The first to focus on an American city was The Silent Traveller in New York, originally published in 1950. The book captures Mr. Chiang's charming and insightful observations on the life and scenery of New York, from Times Square to Chinatown, from Harlem to Greenwich Village, from the Bronx Zoo to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Mr. Chiang also travels up the Hudson River to Poughkeepsie and visits towns in New York's Westchester and Dutchess counties. Illustrated with 17 color and 120 black-and-white illustrations by Mr. Chaing, the words and pictures reveal New York through Chinese eyes, at once familiar, yet unfamiliar, but always strangely beautiful. Chiang Yee has been described as, one of those rare foreigners who help us understand ourselves.
