Comprises reports by two Swedish naturalists and disciples of Carl von Linné about their voyages to China between 1750 and 1752.Pehr Osbeck served as a chaplain on a Swedish East India voyage to Canton where he spent about four months in 1751. The expedition sailed by way of Spain, the Canary Islands, the Cape of Good Hope and Java. Osbeck's account includes detailed and accurate information about plants, fish, insects, birds and other animals along the route. A large collection of newly discovered plants in China and Java was brought back and given to Linné. Osbeck's diary also includes accurate and interesting details about the people in China and their manners, language, food, religion, agriculture, commerce, etc. The second work comprises TorénÕs narrative of an East India voyage via Surat to China which was published posthumously by Linné. Torén writes about his visit to Madagascar with descriptions of the people and different kinds of fruits, trees, plants, lemurs, etc. Many pages are devoted to the stay in Surat, the important Indian seaport at this time. Including valuable descriptions of the inhabitants, housing, customs, religion, language, clothing and also much about trade and merchandise. The voyage continues to Malacca before reaching Macao and Canton. Torén vividly describes life and trade at the factories at Guangzhou (Canton) which then was the centre of Chinese trade for the outside world. Ekeberg's separately printed account of an East India voyage to China, sometimes with bound, is not present here. Cordier BS 2097. Löwendahl 491. Pritzel 6865. Schildt, Linnés lärjungar, pp. 99-144.
