About this book

First published in 1847, this pioneering book was the first to give a clear picture of China as a whole. It was also the most detailed account of Chinese botanical specimens and agricultural practices, as a result of which Western gardens were greatly enriched, and the tea trade transformed. Plant hunter, adventurer and keen oberver, Fortune has left an account to be savoured.
