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.
GBP 150.00
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.
