History of the Insurrection in China

Excerpt from History of the Insurrection in China: With Notices of the Christianity, Creed, and Proclamations of the Insurgents If these gentlemen had merely made use of their opportunities of consulting the archives of their embassies to reduce a quantity of fragmentary information into a continuous narrative, they would still have done good service, considering the import ance of their subject, and the scanty instalments by which we receive all the knowledge connected with it. But they have done far more than this: they have not merely given a dry narrative of the rebellion, but they have introduced so many lively descriptions of localities and events, that while this book has all the charm of a romance, it gives a novel, instructive, and even humorous picture of Chinese manners generally.
