Travels in China

Sir John Barrow (1764-1848) journeyed to China in the 1790s as part of an embassy with Lord Macartney, and this account of Chinese government, trade, industry, culture and religious practices is regarded as a valuable and interesting description of China and the Chinese of the era.
