Quinsai : With Other Notes on Marco Polo Paperback / softback
by A. C. Moule
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.
