On the title pages there are stamps that indicate the ownership and the cancellation from the catalogue of the American Academy of Rome. Small bookplate with monogram on the half-title page.
Interesting work, enriched by numerous good quality illustrations, describing Chinese society, its rules and its history, the life of Guangzhou in the seventies of the XIX century.

The author, John Henry Gray, Archdeacon of Hong Kong from 1868 to his death, consular chaplain in Guangzhou and Commissioner of the Diocese of Victoria, Hong Kong, owes his notoriety mostly to this work.
