Originally published in 1957, and described at the time as 'perhaps the best description of life in a great medieval Chinese city in any Western language', this book by A. C. Moule assesses the depiction of Quinsai (modern-day Hangzhou) in Marco Polo's Description of the World, in particular some of Polo's more mysterious references to aspects of Chinese life and society. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Mongol China or in early Western encounters with China.
