The Spirit of Chinese Philosophy was first published in 1944 by the Beacon Press in Boston.  This paperback copy is from the printing of 1967.  

From the back cover:

"This is a far-reaching study of the developments in the main stream of Chinese philosophy, with an exposition of the author's original system of thought, New Li Hsuëh.  Dr. Fung interprets the sweep of Chinese philosophy -- from ancient thought to Neo-Confucianism -- using as his criterion the degree to which each philosophy 'attains to the sublime and yet performs the common tasks.'  Here is one of the first fruits of the early 20th century revival of the spirit of China which offers to the English-speaking world a new perspective on Chinese philosophy."

This book shows signs of its age -- the pages are slightly yellowed, some page corners have obviously been folded and flattened out again -- but it's free of markings or margin notes and generally in good condition.
