Creator:Gray, George Arthur
Title:Voyage to China: To China and back
Date(s):1863-1869
Call No:MSS 0097, Item 0030
Abstract:These four volumes contain three handwritten variations of the travel narrative of nineteenth-century American sailor George Arthur Gray recorded on his roundtrip voyage from Boston to China between March 1863[...] and May 1866. The original diary entries were expanded into a full narrative, which Gray apparently hoped to publish. The narrative focuses on Chinese social customs, the Chinese coast, and the details of a sailor's life.
