A. H. Savage-Landor wrote this book in 1895 after visiting Joseon in 1890.

The author was a painter, but he came to Joseon with the objective view compared to other westerners

who had the purpose of coming to Joseon like missionary or diplomat

and he had several comic strips for the appearance of Joseon at the time and left them in books.
