"25 Albertype plates from photographs of Korea by Percival Lowell. Forbes Albertype Co., Boston, did the plates. This copy also contains two handwritten notes by Lowell laid in.

The pictures by him, as reproduced by the Forbes company, are striking and the tonal range of the collotypes is particularly effective in this book." -- Hanson collection catalog, p. 88
