Account of a voyage of discovery to the west coast of Corea, and the great Loo-Choo Island; with an appendix containing charts, and various hydrographical and scientific notes  


OUR PRICE: £32.00  Winter Sale Price £25.60

A charming description of an 1816 expedition to Korea and Loo-CHoo island with colour illustrations of the islanders that created a sensation when first published.
A Narrative by Captain Basil Hall of his voyage with Captain Murray Maxwell to the West Coast of Corea (Korea) and the Great Loo-Choo Island in 1816. This appealing work attracted great popular interest when it was published for it's portrayal of the people of the Island - 'We saw nothing like poverty or distress of any kind: every person that we met seemed contented and happy'. The detailed colour drawings of the islanders and Hall's powers of description combine to create a wonderful picture of a land that must have seemed exotically different to the visiting Europeans from their own homeland.
