by Royal Asiatic Society

Excerpt from Transactions of the Korea Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, 1918, Vol. 9 Apropos of travel, Charles Darwin, in a retrospective chapter in his classical Voyage of the Beagle, says A traveller should be a botanist, for in all views plants form the chief embellishment. Group masses of naked rock, even in the wildest forms, may for a time afford a sublime spectacle, but they will soon grow monotonous. Paint them with bright and varied colours and they become fantastic clothe them with vegetation, and they must form a decent, if not beautiful picture.
