PEARL S. BUCK
Book review - handwritten and signed "P.S.B." by Buck - for China Under the Empress Dowager. This is a subject that Buck had some experience with, as she lived in China during the last years of the Empress Doawager Tzu Hsi's reign.
Autograph manuscript signed: "P.S.B.", with editorial marks and corrections, 1 page, 8½x11, on ruled paper. Titled: "China Under the Empress Dowager by J.O.P./Bland and E. Backhouse". This is a review for a book about China's Empress Dowager Tzu Hsi. Buck had some firsthand knowledge about this subject, because she grew up in China during the last 16 years of Tzu Hsi's reign and life. Buck wrote essays and reviews for magazines like Asia (which she also edited), The Nation, The Chinese Review and Atlantic Monthly. Buck (1892-1973), born to Presbyterian missionaries, spent the first forty years of her life in China, the setting of many of her books. She was the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature (1938). Best known for her novels about China (including The Good Earth; 1932 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction), Buck wrote over 70 novels as well as biographies, an autobiography (My Several Worlds, 1954), dramas, children's literature and translations from the Chinese. Lightly toned and creased. Two paperclip impressions at top edge. Three torn binder holes on left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
