Abstract: Andrews, under the auspices of the American Museum of Natural History, set forth on an expedition whose express purpose was to make a study of the fauna indigenous to Korea. The account, which is supplemented by some thirty-odd photographs, is particularly good descriptively when dealing with such subjects as the behavior of Koreans towards the Andrews expedition and the author himself, the topography of northern Korea, the Korean water-hammer, and the use of tiger-blood as a tonic. The plates ofer pictoral documentation of such cultural items as dwellings, normal garb and techniques of burden-carrying and should be consulted by all those interested in Korea.
