Sir Eric Teichman (1884–1944) was a British diplomat and renowned travel writer. In this book, which was first published in 1921, Teichman provides an 'account of a series of journeys through the North-Western Provinces of China, undertaken in connection with the Anglo-Chinese Opium Treaty and other matters requiring investigation on the spot in conjunction with Chinese officials.' Numerous photographic figures are incorporated throughout the text. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the geography of North-West China, diplomatic history and travel writing.
