14 photographic prints of locations in China, taken by the Geologist Bailey Willis in 1903-1904 during a Carnegie institution funded geological expedition through China. Scenes include pagodas at Wutaishan and Tang dynasty Nestorian monuments outside of Xi'an. Documentation is sparse, but the photographs appear to have been sent to Charles L. Freer by Willis in November of 1908. At the time, Freer was considering purchase of a modern replica of the Nestorian Stele. His examination of Willis' original photograph of the stele confirmed that the replica was not worth acquisition.

In 1949, Willis published his recollections of the expedition in his book "Friendly China."

Scope and Contents:
Glass plate negatives taken by Chinese photographer Yü Tai for Charles Lang Freer during his journey to the cave temples of Longmen in Henan Province, and a subsequent trip to Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province between October 1910 and February 1911. Freer spent 2 weeks at Longmen, making extensive notes and photographs of the Buddhist sculptures. Many cave features have been subsequently damaged, destroyed, or pilfered, hence, many of the photographs are unique documents of earlier states. Other Henan Province locations depicted include Kaifeng, Gongxian, and Luoyang; Sites and monuments include the Iron Pagoda in Kaifeng; the Gongxian Buddhist cave temples, and Song Dynasty Imperial Tombs. Hangzhou sites include West Lake; Leifeng Pagoda; Lingyin Temple; Feilaifeng, and the tomb of Yue Fei. A small number of negatives appear to be copies from books or prints.
