In 1936, Henry Inn of Honolulu - a connoisseur of Chinese art - made his tenth extensive tour of China to study the designs of houses and gardens. Travelling from Canton to Beijing and from Shanghai to Hangchow, he visited homes of culture and refinement built according to the traditional Chinese principles of architecture, interior decoration and landscape gardening developed over many centuries, sketching and photographing characteristic details. Soon after the volume was prepared, the events of World War II irreparably injured or completely destroyed the houses and gardens that Inn recorded, and later events transformed the way of life described by his collaborators.
