The sailing junk was an amazing vessel. From Tientsin to Hong Kong – and up and down the great rivers in between – Ivon A. Donnelly immortalized these lost treasures in this book from 1924, with a pen and sketchpad and with words that betray his passion for the ancient watercraft of China. Vivid and graceful, grotesque and gay, junks were supremely honed for their particular work. Though time and new technology took their toll and the junk is today all but extinct, their spirit lives on through this delightful collection.
