From the publisher's statement- "The photographic material that has gone into the making of this tour represents a vast expenditure of time, thought and money. A half million dollars would probably not cover the amount expended in acquiring the basic line of negatives from which this set has been assembled. The most remote and inaccessible regions have been assembled."
