CHINESE IN AUSTRALIA. - Correspondence Relating to Chinese Immigration into the Australasian Colonies, with a return of acts passed by the legislatures of those colonies and of Canada and British Columbia on the subject.

London, HMSO 1888. Foolscap, very good in a modern wrapper; x,87pp. ¶ An essential Yellow Peril document gathering details of policy, procedure and personality during a particularly active, perhaps turbulent, period of antagonism and legislation. Collected here are official dispatches and unofficial enclosures, news from all parts of the world and protests from the Chinese. Much of the proud tradition of strict quarantine in Australia has its origin in intercolonial co-operation in declaring ports of embarkation for Chinese immigrants as Infected Places. Prior to this attempts to establish a national quarantine policy had little success.
