Description

A Forbidden Land: Voyages To The Corea, With An Account Of Its Geography, History, Productions And Commercial Capabilities, Etc. is a book written by Ernst Oppert. The book is a detailed account of Oppert’s travels to Korea, which was then known as Corea, during the late 19th century. The book provides a comprehensive description of the geography, history, and commercial potential of Korea. Oppert’s travels to Korea were significant as the country was largely closed to foreigners during that time. As a result, Oppert’s account provides a rare glimpse into the country’s culture and society. The book includes descriptions of the people, their customs, and their way of life. It also provides information on the country’s natural resources, including its flora and fauna, as well as its potential for trade and commerce. The book is divided into several chapters, each of which covers a different aspect of Oppert’s travels and observations. The first chapter provides an overview of the country’s geography and climate, while the second chapter delves into its history and culture. The subsequent chapters cover topics such as the country’s agriculture, mining, and manufacturing industries, as well as its potential for trade with other countries. Overall, A Forbidden Land: Voyages To The Corea, With An Account Of Its Geography, History, Productions And Commercial Capabilities, Etc. is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of Korea. Oppert’s detailed observations and insights provide a unique perspective on a country that was largely unknown to the Western world at the time.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
