He travelled prolifically to Japan, China, Burma, Mexico, India and Palestine, producing many art works inspired by and undertaken during his trips, and publishing a number of similar volumes detailing other travel destinations.

With one hundred colour plates as well as line drawings in the text by Mortimer Menpes.
