" No book could possibly appear more opportunely than these interesting volumes. . . . Mr. Colquhoun's volumes would be a welcome addition to our- geographical knowledge at any time. ... In ' Across Chrys ' the public will find solid stores of information about one of the most promising outlets for our future trade that we can see in any part of the world. The numerous illustrations, which lend a special character to the volumes, as throwing quite a new light on the varied features of the scenery and inhabitants of China, claim a closing word of notice and commendation."a Times.
"These two splendid volumes, whose illustrations and maps would of themselves be enough to make them a valuable possession, are a narrative of a most adventurous journey from Canton to Mandalay. Chrys, it may be explained, is the Golden Land of the geographer Ptolemy. The subject is as fresh and as absorbing in its interest as Mr. Colquhoun's narrative is spirited and complete."aThe World.
