Korea and the Sacred White Mountain

hard cover,224 pages. 8 vo. cloth. illustrated from photographs and sketches in black and white including plates partly in color. First edition. An enthusiastic 'narrative of the way in which a few weeks' leave was spent in Korea in 1891 . . . . It was at first intended that Captain Goold-Adams, RA, and I should jointly publish the accounts of our journeys, but as he is still in the Far East, the collaboration had to be abandoned. However, chapter viii is a short narrative of his ascent of the White Mountain , in which . . . I was unable to accompany him . . . . My thanks are due to Mr C. W. Campbell, of the Chinese Consular Service, for kindly allowing me to make use of some of the photographs which he took during his journey to the White Mountain in 1889; also to Mr Hillier and Mr Brazier for their photographs. The photograph of the lake on the summit of the White Mountain is combined from three views taken by Captain Goold-Adams; owing to the defective state of the films, our Kodak pictures were, with this solitary exception, total failures' (introduction).Cordier, Sinica 2970.
