Ida Hurst – Typist in China, 1941

Posted: October 30th, 2018 | 1 Comment »

Ida Hurst was apparently an intrepid traveller between the wars and also a typist! I would very much like to read her book from 1941, Typist in China, but I’m a bit stuck finding a copy – anyone got one?

    I have a copy. I don’t think there is any copy for sale on the internet.

    . 1st Edition printed in 1941
    . Hard back but no illustrated cover.
    . complete with all illustrations.
    . A little fraying on the spine, pages show ageing due to worldwide travel, but good overall condition.
    . Bought it in a Cairo book market.

    £ 30.00 plus shipping. Payment via PayPal.
