'Foochow and the River Min', an album of photographs taken in China by John Thomson (1837-1921) was published in 1873. Forty-six copies of the album were produced for subscribers, many of whom were probably British merchants and tea planters that Thomson met during his extensive travels in China between 1864 and 1872. Thomson's outstanding photography of the scenes and people of China and the Far East earned him recognition as the first of the great photojournalists.
