The town has a history going back more than 1,000 years and was once a confluence for trade along the "Old Tea Horse Caravan Trail." The Dayan Old town is famous for its orderly system of waterways and bridges, a system fast becoming but a memory as the underground water table drops, probably due to over-building in the suburban areas (from Wiki). The text is in English and in Chinese. This first edition was limited to 1000 copies only. No ownership marks and no signs of use.
