Product Description


An erudite and scholarly account of a largely forgotten mid-nineteenth century verifiable voyage of the three-masted Chinese trading junk, Keying from Hong Kong to London via the Cape of Good Hope, New York and Boston, which will be of interest to all maritime historians and students of naval architecture. -- Professor Hugh Murphy, Visiting Reader in Maritime History, Royal Museums, Greenwich Stephen Davies reinstates a unique-and long forgotten-voyage of a Chinese junk across the Indian and Atlantic Oceans to its rightful place in global history. A remarkable scholarly achievement based on a rare combination of sharp historical analysis, meticulous research and an encyclopedic knowledge of ships and sailing. -- Elizabeth Sinn, Author of Pacific Crossing: California Gold, Chinese Migration, and the Making of Hong Kong We owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Davies for showing us this half-world and for bringing this adventure some of the publicity it surely deserves. -- John Butler Asian Review of Books
