Souvenir Press, London - first UK edition ISBN:0285621327, 1974. hardcover, 6¼" x 9½", with dust jacket. Slight shelf-wear to bottom boards. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Fourteen full page drawings by the author, historical commentary, notes, chronology, and index. This is the only personal memoir of Mao's early years ever to be published in the West. The author met Mao at school, organised together a Study Association which later became the Chinese Communist Party, lived together in Peking, and in 1917 walked 40kms a day through Hunan dressed as beggars, talking to monks and poor peasants. This book records the friendship between two exceptional but deeply dissimilar personalities. Very interesting.
