Maggie Keswick, a Scots-born connoisseur of China and its sensuous, mysterious gardens, died on July 8 in London. She was 53 and had homes in London, Santa Monica, Calif. and Wellfleet, Mass. The cause was breast cancer, said John Taylor Williams of Palmer & Dodge, the family's legal counsel in Boston. She also contributed to the "Oxford Garden Companion" and to books by her husband, Charles Alexander Jencks, a post-modernist architect and professor at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Architecture.

Jardine, Matheson & Co. was founded in Canton in 1832, and built up to become an international trading house with business interests throughout the world. The Thistle & The Jade assembles contributions from both leading historians, such as Professor John King Fairbank and Professor K.C. Lui, and old Jardine hands, including Alan Reid and Sir John Keswick, to tell the story of how this happened. The result is a fascinating miscellany of scholarship and anecdote that tells an exciting tale of merchant adventure, of how wealth and influence were accumulated in the early days of trading, and of the special relationship forged by 'the Princely Hong' with China and her people.
