George Uvedale Price. I have found little information on George Uvedale Price except for occasional listings of books carrying his name which relate to China. It appears that these books were published in the period between 1893-1897. They are photographic albums and were published by Kelly & Walsh. It appears that they all contain reproductions of Price's photographs printed by the collotype process. Some books attribute the collotype plates to K. Ogawa, Tokyo, Japan. More information on this book is here.
