Item description for Everything in Style: Harriet Lows Macau by Rosmarie W. N. Lamas...
In the 1820s and 1830s, Macau was the center of life for foreigners trading with China. Harriet Low came to this European enclave on the China coast as a young woman accompanying her aunt and her uncle, a trader from Salem, Massachusetts. During her stay, she wrote a diary that both shows her lively personality and offers a rich picture of life in Macau. Rosmarie Lamas embeds well-chosen extracts from the diary into her text to create a fascinating account of the place and its society.
