Description

Excerpt from Three Years' Wanderings in the Northern Provinces of China: Including a Visit to the Tea, Silk, and Cotton Countries, With an Account of the Agriculture and Horticulture of the Chinese, New Plants, Etc

The Author has been much gratified with the favourable manner in which the first edition of his work has been received by the public. It has been suggested by his friends, that it would be desirable in a new edition to enter more fully into the subject of Tea. He has therefore given some statistical information, tending to show the quantity of this production which is consumed by the Chinese themselves, as well as what they could spare for the European market, in the event of a greater demand arising from the reduction of tea duties. Attention has also been directed to our dominions in the north-west of India, which seem to possess all the requisites of a tea country.

These, and some other additions which have been made to the work, will, it is hoped, render it more interesting.
