Descripción Travel Book Club. London. (1938) 1938 UK Book Club edition. 8vo (140 x 220mm). Pp232. B/w photograph plates, fold-out map to rear end-paper verso. Green cloth-backed cream boards, spine titled in black. Relevant press clippings pasted to front and rear end-papers, some use and browning, good. Slightly frayed dust-wrapper pasted to brown-paper reinforcement. First published in Sweden as I Morgenstillhetens Land: Skildringar FrÕn en Forskningsfõrd Till Korea (To the land of the morning silence: accounts from a research expedition to Korea). The UK edition was translated by Frederick Whyte and first published by John Gifford, London 1938. This is the Travel Book Club edition of the same year. This is a fascinating account of a trip to Korea in 1938. The author's intention was to study birds, do a bit of shooting and collect natural history and ethnographical specimens for Swedish museums. Bergman is an engaging raconteur and describes Korea and Korean life in some detail. "If you want to go from Sweden to Korea you have three routes to choose between - via America, via the Suez Channel (sic) and via Siberia. The last naturally is the shortest. It takes only thirteen days but on the other hand it involves undertaking the world's longest uninterrupted train journey." It also meant the opportunity to examine a huge part of the Soviet Union, and a large part of the most unstable regions of China. Japan had invaded Korea in 1910, and by 1938 the country had been heavily colonised with Japanese citizens, to the point of almost being a province of Japan. Japan had also taken the neighbouring Chinese province of Manchuria, turning it into a puppet state under the emperor Pu Yi. Although the Second World War had not yet happened, Japan had been more or less continually at war with neighbouring states since the middle of the 1890's. China had more or less collapsed as a unified state and was being fought over by a weak national government, provincial warlords, the Chinese Communist Party and the Japanese army. This background of political turmoil, ethnic tension and low-level warfare is hardly touched on in Bergman's narrative which conjures up an atmosphere of Moomin-like tranquility and innocence, regardless of what it is describing. This actually makes the book a better read, especially when you trip over statements such as, "The author received in Keijo (Seoul) this photograph of his own children from a Japanese stranger, Mr. Kuroda, naval engineer, who had taken it by chance in Stockholm." Bergman had spent 1936 searching for bears, in Kamchatka, no less. Bergman's incredibly thorough Korean itinerary took in the two extremities of the northern border, the part of the border itself which is not bounded by the Valu River, some portion of the eastern and western littoral until implausible to do other than head for Seoul, south to Taiden, then separately to the SE extremity at the port of Fusan and from Taiden again to the SW extremity of the peninsula at the port of Moppo, with a separate diversion inland and a trip from Moppo to the island of Quelpart. Quelpart is a natural fortress guarding the Straits of Korea, just over the water from Japan, and facing Shanghai across the East China Sea. Whether Bergman was actually a spy or just unfeasibly naive can only be left to the reader's imagination. A thoroughly great book, with more tension in the narrative than the author might have intended. Nº de ref. de la librería 36640
