Isabella Bird was one of the most remarkable travel writers in the Victorian age and the first woman to be elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. She recorded her extensive travels in books illustrated with her own photographs. In 1894, whilst exploring Korea, she was expelled from the country. This 'adventure' changed her life and her understanding of China forever.
