His position afforded him exceptional opportunities for obtaining information of every kind, and readers who would learn something of a counotry whose importance bears no relation to its size should read this book. The book is profusely illustrated, not only with the Author's own photographs, but with line drawings by a Chinese artist; whilst throughout the entire work there is a deft handling of subjects which makes the reader wish that there were space to consider more fully several of those problems which to-day await solution in the Far East." ; Uncommon.
