We’ve seen prices of vintage mah jong sets climb.  Is it the beauty of the tiles or because we’re fascinated with the game that many of our grandparents played?  Tracing mah-jong’s history from its roots in China to it immense popularity in the 1920’s, this gem of a book takes a close look at the game, and includes a clear explanation of rules, info on tournaments,  meanings of the tiles, and even recipes for Chinese and Jewish food to nibble while playing.  176 pages, HC, over 100 illust, 5” X 7”
