82 pages; Former owner's name on ffep, two editorial pencil marks (one on page 2 and one on page 65), otherwise text is clean and tight in original printed wrappers. Wrappers are chipped at edges and faded at spine. A very scarce English translation of the Chinese legal code relating to business. A typed label on front wrapper states "Not an Official Translation / See translation of Dr. Chao-yuen Chang." The Company Law promulgated in 1929 by the Nationalist government was the first comparatively complete Chinese legislation concerning companies. The 1929 Company Law was replaced by the expanded and greatly revised Company Law of 1946 (offered here). China's first written Constitution was promulgated in 1946, and later the same year representatives of the US and China signed a five year "Treaty of Friendship, Commerce, and Navigation" at Nanking. An article in Pravda claimed that this treaty returned China to a "semi-colonial condition" and re-established economic dependence on the US. Not surprisingly, this Chinese Company Law of 1946 came to an end in mainland China when the Communist party took over the government in 1949. This translation of the laws relating to the establishment of business and commerce was undertaken privately by the law firm of Ao Sen, Dean of the Soochow University Law School. It would be interesting to compare this translation to the "Official Translation" by Chao-yuen Chang. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
