paperback , large 8 vo.573 pages plus 20 gages of plates.first edition.very rare academic work on Geographical Botany of Korea.
T.Nakai Tokyo University,Tokyo English


hard cover, 8 vo. cloth.392 pages. first edition.5 maps, 10 toned lithos, 40 illustrations.Primary source on Japan ,China and Korea taken from keen observations from cruise to the Japan ,China and Korea during author's stay in Japan for 7 years.Numerous sketches throughout. The author was a naturalist and a hunter, and his naval duties as commander of a British warship , the H. M. S. Sylvia, brought him the opportunity to collect and shoot throughout much of East Asia during his seven years in the region in the 1850's. His written account of his experiences are very colorful and spiced by Western superiority. But his descriptions of the wildlife and natural landscapes are especially interesting. They almost render his experiences with typhoons, pirates, Ainu savages, and all that might be expected to be recounted in such a memoir as secondary. His desire for accuracy prompted him to include an appendix of Japanese birds, as enumerated in Siebold's Fauna Japonica, which assisted him in determining his own collection of Japanese ornithology. Some of his collection he states were contributed to the British Museum. Locations: Hong Kong, the Inland Sea, the Kuril Islands, Kiusiu (Kyushu?), Yesso, Hainan, Soochow, Canton, among others.
