"Collingwoood (1806-1908), Fellow of the Linnean Society, sailed as surgeon and naturalist on board HMS ‘Rifleman’ and ‘Serpent’ 1866-1867 under Cdr. Bullock on an extensive Admiralty surveying voyage of exploration in the China Seas. His research centred on marine zoology but his account of ports and harbours, people and customs of the China coast, Hong Kong and Canton, Formosa, Singapore, Sarawak, Manila and their natural history are particulary detailed. Appended is an extensive vocabulary of the native language of Sau-O Bay on Formosa’s east coast, south of Keelung."--abebooks website.
