Twilight in the Forbidden City
By Reginald F. Johnston
Appleton, 1934, 485 pp

The author, who was tutor to the boy Emperor, gives a fascinating account of the checkered history of China since 1898 as seen from the palace. The story is continued to the time of the Emperor's ascension of the Manchukuoan throne.
