Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

In the original German.

Illustrated with two striking colour plates, and many full-paged and in-text monochrome illustrations.

Collated, complete.

Georg Stenz's study into the German leased territory in Imperial and Early Republican China, which Germany held from 1898 to 1914, this volume looking in particular at the Shandong Peninsula.

The city of Qufu in Shandong is the birthplace of Confucius, and was later the centre of Confucianism. 

An interesting look into this area of China as it was when it was colonised by Germany.

Stenz was a German Catholic missionary of the Society of the Divine Word, who was based in Shandong from 1893 to 1927. During this period he found himself involved in two major incidents of force against the missionaries, the Juye Incident in 1897 and the Jietou Incident, in 1898.
