This antiquarian volume contains a vivid description of nineteenth century Korea written by Isabella Bird Bishop. This account comprises an interesting and insightful narrative of travel, with an account of the vicissitudes and contemporary state of society in the country. This text is as much of an exploration of Victorian mindsets as it is an exploration of foreign lands, and will be of considerable value to those with an interest in Victorian travelling mentality, or Korea at this point in history. The chapters of this book include: 'First Impressions of Korea'; 'First Impressions of the Capital'; 'The Kur-Dong'; 'Soul, The Korean Mecca'; 'The Sailing of the Sampan'; 'On The River of Golden Sand'; 'Views Afloat'; 'Natural Beauty - The Rapids'; 'Korean Marriage Customs', etcetera. We are republishing this vintage book now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
