Notes

A splendidly illustrated pictorial map of China.

The map was compiled by John A. Diakoff and drawn by G. Primakoff. It covers the whole of China from Kashgar and Yarken to Korea and Japan, and from Mongolia to Nepal. Several vignettes illustrate a diversity of plants, animals, cultures, architecture, and resources. The text annotations are both in English and Chinese.

John Diakoff was the Scientific Collaborator of the former Russian Orientalist’s Society’, which was a Russian group based in Harbin, China.
