Hong Kong, Macao, Tokyo, Honolulu, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna, Geneva, Naples, Monte Carlo - these are his 'thrilling cities'. He writes about them brilliantly, impressionistically, as no one else would or could, ostensibly for our entertainment yet not without giving us the benefit of some expert observation." Previous owner's small name stamp at top of title page and page preceding rear free endpaper. Bookstore label (small) at bottom of front pastedown, light browning to top/bottom edge of spine and hinge areas, very light toning to fore-edge and bottom of text block. Dust jacket has light browning to inside top/bottom edges and light toning on iside of front flap-fold, very light rubbing, a very tiny chip and a tiny tear at top of rear hinge area, very light edge wrinkling and minor wear - mainly at top of front flap-fold and bottom edge of rear panel, faint 3" scratch on rear panel, a few faint rub lines on spine, one or two very tiny bubbles in laminate on front panel, protected in a mylar sleeve. Very Good/Very Good.
