From the publisher’s website:
This book contains selected writings of Min Yŏnghwan, a statesman and reformist of late-Chosŏn Korea. Min’s detailed descriptions of his journeys to Russia to attend Czar Nicholas II’s coronation and London for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee produce vivid images of the world at that time while also revealing Min’s perceptions from his Confucian background. Readers will find the translation smooth and the texts engaging.
