The Mac is Not a Typewriter: A Style Manual for Creating Professional-level Type on Your Macintosh
This is a biography of the American linguist, scholar and diplomat William Woodville Rockhill (1854-1914), an extraordinary man who mastered the Tibetan language and became the first Westerner to befriend and advise a Dalai Lama, perhaps most famously on the vexed issue of Tibet's status with regard to China. He is often considered the original China hand, the principle drafter and executor of the Open Door policy who - in between postings to Peking, St Petersburg and Constantinople - translated Tibetan texts.
