  • Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals (1817-1949)
  • Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China, 1854-1949
Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals: A collection of 17 English-language periodicals published in, or about, China during a period of over 130 years, extending from 1817 until 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded. This corresponds to the periods of the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican Era (1911-1949), when China experienced radical and often traumatic transformations from an inward-looking imperial dynasty into a globally engaged republic with modern approaches to politics, literature, education, public morality, and intellectual life.
Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China: This collection provides primary source material for the study of China and its relations with the West in the late Qing and Republican periods. The records in this collection, including official correspondence, dispatches, reports, memoranda, and private and confidential letters, offer evidence of Chinese life, the economy and politics through the Taiping Rebellion, the Boxer Rebellion, the Revolution of 1911, the May 30 Movement, the two Sino-Japanese Wars, and the Chinese Civil War.
