China and Far East Through Western Eyes

China and Far East Through Western Eyes provides open access to full text historical books from HKUL’s rare collections. The strength of this collection is China studies including multidisciplinary work, spanning history, culture and custom, religion, philosophy, geography, politics, literature, arts and sciences. These materials were chiefly accounts of Western foreigners and Jesuit missionaries who experienced China in the eighteenth-century to the early twentieth century, written mainly in English, but also French, German, Dutch, and Portuguese. This collection also includes some historical publications relating to other Asian countries like Japan, Korea and Indochina, where these places were also points of interests along Westerners’ travel route to China in the nineteenth century.
