 About the Book 

When Christopher Morley first introduced the Old Mandarin to his readers in Translations from the Chinese, the delightful old sage who saw New York with the curious wisdom of the East became one of his best-loved characters. These further thoughts, inspired by a delicatessen window, a Chicago bookseller, the advertisements on a bus, perhaps even a pretty girl, have both charm of observation and a cunning twist to many of their conclusions. These are lovingly illustrated by Gluyas Williams who made the Old Mandarins first book a joy to all its possessors.
