The Far Eastern question centering in the affairs of China, this list is largely taken up with references to works upon that country.

Works on the history of events leading up to the present situation have been noted, or those in any way touching upon the European advance in Asia.

The following notes are exclusively concerned with


History.—The most extensive single work in English is Boulger's History of China, first published in 1881–1884, and revised editions in 1898 and 1900, respectively. Its chief value lies in its detailed account of “European progress in China subsequent to the signing of the treaty of Nankin in 1842, including the Taeping rebellion in all its phases and Gordon's campaign.” The earlier part of his history is drawn mainly from the Jesuit epitomes of the Chinese annalists. The new edition of his Short History has an additional chapter, written by another hand, giving a summary account of the reign of Kwang Su, covering the capture of Pekin.

Douglas's History, forming a volume of the “Story of the nations series,” will give all that the general reader needs.

In Macgowan's "Á history of China from the earliest days to the present” recourse has been had to the original authorities. "It is not a compilation gathered from all sources, but a reproduction from the original of the Standard History of China."

Williams's “Middle Kingdom,” first published in 1848, constituted for a long time the principal source of information for English readers, and in its revised form is still regarded as a classic.

The Anglo-French expedition to China in 1860 parallels in some measure the memorable march of the allies to Pekin the past summer. Gordon's private diary of his campaign in China was edited by S. Mossman in 1885. See also Gordon's “Recollections of thirty-nine years in the army,” London, 1898. Also lives of Gordon by Boulger, Butler, Hake, and Mossman.

The Journals of Sir James Hope Grant, who commanded the allies in the march to Pekin, edited by Henry Knollys, appeared in London, 1895.

Other English accounts noted in this list are M'Ghee's "How we got to Pekin;" Loch's personal narrative; Sir Garnet Wolseley's “Narrative of the war in China in 1860.”. The first named was chaplain to the English forces, Loch was secretary at headquarters in Pekin, and Lord Wolseley served as deputy assistant quartermaster-general.

In Poole’s “Life of Sir Harry Parkes” will be found an account of the latter's participation in the events at Pekin in 1860-61. Parkes was for a time a prisoner at Pekin and subsequently accompanied Napier in his entrance to the city in October, 1860.

The Earl of Elgin's experiences upon his mission in 1860 at Pekin are related in his “Letters and Journals,” London, 1872. Oliphant's “Narrative of the Earl of Elgin's mission” deals with his embassy of 1859.

The French narratives noted in this list are: Chassiron, "Notes sur le Japan, la Chine," etc.; Keroulée, “Un voyage à Pé-kin;" Lavollée, “La Chine contemporaine,” Paris, 1860; “France et Chine,” Paris, 1900; Mutrécy, “Journal de la Campagne de Chine, 1859-60-61," Paris, 1861.

Spielmann, a German writer, has lately published “Die Taiping Revolution in China, 1860-1864.”

The later history is dealt with, among others, in Boulger's History; Colquhoun, “China in Transformation;" Eitel, “Europe in China;”? Krausse, China in Decay; The Story of the Chinese Crisis; Leroy-Beaulieu, "The awakening of the East;" Norman, Peoples and Politics of the Far East.

Political and economic conditions are discussed in works by Beresford, Brenier, Chirol, Coates, Colquhoun, Curzon, Gorst, Krausse, Leroy-Beaulieu, Marcillac, Parker, Parsons, Reinsch, Smyth, Watson, and Wildman. (See under these names in the body of this list.)

Railroads.—This subject is treated by the following writers: Lord Beresford, von Brandt, de Bray, Colquhoun, Fauvel, Glass, Krahmer, Marcillac, Mikhailoff, Perowne, Vladimir. See also important articles in Questions Diplomatiques, vol. 4 (1898); vol. 7 (1899); Engineering Magazine, vol. 16 (Dec., 1898); Forum, vol. 28 (Nov., 1899); Archiv für Eisenbahnwesen (Jan., Feb., 1900).

Russia in the Far East.-See the following: Adams, Bookwalter, Boulger, Carol, Cobbold, Colquhoun, Curzon, Krahmer, Krausse, Lebedev, Legras, Leroy-Beaulieu, Norman, Perowne, Reid, Rohrbach, Skrine, Vladimir.

United States in the Far East.-Adams, Boulger, Cailleux, Conant, Giddings, Parsons, Reinsch, Wildman, Dilke, and Wilson, Wu Ting Fang (in Smyth's The Crisis in China).

The social life of China can be studied in Douglas's “Society in China,” Little's "Intimate China,” Macgowan's “Pictures of China,” Moule's “New China and old,” Smith's" Chinese Characteristics” (which the Edinburgh Review calls “the most brilliant book ever written on the subject”). See also his Village life in China.

Travel.–Recent works are Bishop's “The Yangtze Valley and beyond,” Cumming's “Wanderings in China," Little’s “Through the Yang-tse gorges," Plauchut’s “China and the Chinese,” Scidmore's “China.'

Missions.-For this subject see works of Barrows, Beach, Edking, Gundry, Johnston, Michie, Smyth, Speer, Stott.

Periodicals.-The following periodicals are devoted to the affairs of the Far East: Customs Gazette, Shanghai; China Review; Chinese Recorder; Imperial and Asiatic quarterly review; Journal Asiatique, Journal of the China Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society; Toung Pao, Leyden; Oesterreichische Monatsschrift für den Orient, Vienna; Zeitschrift der Deutschen Morgenländischen Gesellschaft, Leipzig.

For accounts of the events of last summer recourse must be had in the main to current periodicals. The siege of the legations is described by Sir Robert Hart in the Fortnightly Review for November and the Cosmopolitan for December. The Century for December contains an article on the march of the allies by a member of the expedition. An important article is “The siege of the Pekin legation," by Dr. Morrison, originally published in the London Times and reprinted in the Living Age for the latter part of November and the first part of December. McClure's for November and the Outlook for the latter part of the same month contain diaries of the siege kept by women who were prisoners in Pekin.

the dates, data, itineraries, geographical details, commercial notes, and other information furnished by the industrious and
scrupulously painstaking author, than whom there is no one in the sinological field more worthy of absolute confidence.”

the subject. The appendices to the book are particularly useful for reference, as they include a chronology of the history of the

Far East, the text of the more important treaties and conventions, and furnish a bibliography of authorities on the Far East.

comprend la correspondance diplomatique de M. de Lagréné, qui conclut en 1844 le premier traité entre la France et la Chine;
puis le récit de l'expédition franco-anglaise qui, en 1860, pénétra jusque dans Pékin. L'auteur est un des rare survivants de
la mission de M. de Lagréné, qui vista de 1844 à 1846 les principales contrées de l'Extrême-Orient. Il contient des docu-
ments très précieux à consulter au milieu des difficultés des heure présente; il éclaire spécialement d'une façon très sûre, le
fond des idées de la Chine, ses meurs, ses traditions, son état d'âme.

L'ouvrage de M. Pierre Leroy-Beaulieu, ‘La rénovation de l'Asie (Sibérie, Chine, Japon),' a eu un grand succès.
où le jeune voyageur a jugé avec tant de clairvoyance les pays d'Extrême-Orient, qu'il a étudés sur place, ont fait, non seule-
ment en France, mais à l'étranger, la plus vive impression. En trois mois la première édition de cet ouvrage a été épuisée; la
deuxième vient de paraître, avec une nouvelle préface, chez l'éditeur Colin ... En même temps, l'on en prépare une traduction
anglaise et une traduction allemande.”—L'Economiste française. "M. Leroy-Beaulieu, in his interesting work, ‘La rénovation
de l'Asie', deals with the Japanese question at some length. His book is doubly interesting because it is the first serious
contribution to the discussion of the Far Eastern question by a French writer, and because, like Mr. Colquhoun's book, it

regards the Chinese problem not as an isolated fact, but as part of a vast evolution.”

He speaks throughout in measured language of what Britain must do, and hardly mentions other powers. How are the mighty fallen! We have now neither the confidence of the Chinese nor the friendship of the other powers to rely on. There are certain moves in the game, however, which would be advantageous to us, and might at the same time meet with the approval, not only of some of the

great powers, but of a section of China. We must play off one force against another.”' M’Ghee, R. J. L. How we got to Pekin. A narrative of the campaign in China of 1860. With illustrations. London: R. Bentley,
