xtremely rare pamphlets from the Charles W. Wason Collection on East Asia, Cornell University Library; one of the oldest and most distinctive collections of its kind.

Spanning three centuries, China: Culture and Society provides access to the Wason Pamphlet collection in its entirety. Mostly in English and published between c.1750 and 1929, these rare pamphlets make up one of the most extensive collections of literature on China and the Chinese in the Western world.

As there is no comparable digital project offering this type of material, this project meets the need for English language research sources relating to China and the West, and addresses a wide variety of research interests and topics surrounding Chinese history, religion, culture and everyday life.

Much of the knowledge of China written for consumption by the English-speaking world appeared first in pamphlets written by diplomats, missionaries, merchants, academics, and travellers working in or passing through China, and even by writers observing China from afar. There was hardly a topic that was not the focus of a published pamphlet, including language and literature, games and pastimes, architecture, natural history, opium, foot binding, philosophy, religion and mythology, international relations, and myriad other topics.
