“Although many had heard of the Great Wall of China, few realized its magnitude. There was not only one Great Wall of China, but there were several, which in some places stood parallel with one other. The Great Wall was not continuous everywhere.”
(A.H. Savage Landor, Everywhere. The memoirs of an Explorer, New York 1924, I, p. 147)
