Lo Hui-Min & Bryant, Helen: BRITISH DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR ESTABLISHMENTS IN CHINA 1793-1949: VOL. II. Consular Establishments 1843-1949. Taipei, 1988. xiii, 632 pp. Numerous b/w text maps. 22x31 cm. Cloth.
The result of much research, this volume covers all consular posts in China between 1843 and 1949 with the exception of Peking and Hong Kong. A total of 52 consular establishments are covered from Amoy to Yunnanfu (Kunming). The section on a given consular post starts with a history of its foreign presence, hand-drawn maps of the area where the town is located and an outline map of the town itself. There is then a chronological listing of the known British officials posted to that town. Fascinating. Grubby at edges, internally fine.
