Dear members
As far as I know  based on  Griffis own preface to the Hermit Kingdom (1882) that he confessed that he was a compiler and seemed slightly embarrassed that he had never set foot in Korea and that his knowledge was all second hand based on various other travelers and reports. Of course this kind of armchair scholar attitude was par for the course at the time. I think he visited briefly much later in the 1910s.
