[BOURNE, F.S.A.] - Report on the Trade of Central and Southern China.
London, HMSO 1898. Octavo printed wrapper; 99pp, two folding maps and a folding chart. ¶ Not, as you might expect, a dry compilation of facts and figures (though there are plenty there), but the report of a commercial mission undertaken in 1896 and 97, and so full of first hand observation and anecdote, and not without adventure. The descriptions of trade, industries and manufactures are of interest and include, naturally, silk and opium but the underlying concern is domination, English domination of the China trade, and the means to achieve it.AUD 300.00 [Appr.: EURO 213 US$ 229.86 | £UK 184 | JP¥ 25563] Book number 7691
