Pavel Piasetskiy (1843 - 1919) was only a respected doctor but also talented artist and writer. These versatile abilities ensured his participation in a number of official Russian expeditions to Asia and Middle East. In 1874 he joined a trade expedition to China (1874-75) headed by colonel Yulian Sosnovskiy. After its completion, Piasetskiy described his ethnographical, geographical and scientific finding in the work titled 'A Journey around China' (Путешествие по Китаю).
He published in a separate work his observations related to the public health and medical treatment. This is the second edition, after the first published in 1876 under another title «О медицине и санитарных условиях Китая».

A fine example of this rare work: we could trace only one copy in public institutions outside Russia, in the Rasmuson library in Fairbanks.
