With this intention I made the camera my constant companion of my wanderings, and to it I am indebted for the faithful reproduction of the scenes I visited, and of the types of races which I came into contact' (Introduction). Two large volumes (48x36 cm), bound in maroon cloth, front covers adorned with a gilt illustration of a Confucian temple in Peking and gilt titles, gilt edges; corners are worn, edges show some rubbing, spines have been professionally restored, the first pages of the second volume have some foxing, still a very good condition for these 2 volumes [2 volumes de grand format (48x36 cm), recouverts de toile marron, couvertures ornées d'une illustration dorée représentant un temple à Pékin et de titres et motifs dorés, tranches dorées; coins de couverture écrasés et usés, tranches frottées par endroits, dos restaurés par un relieur professionnel, des rousseurs sur les premières pages du second volume, dans l'ensemble deux volumes en état très satisfaisant
