Supplied note: "This digital library gathers together a large body of
primarily European and American images of the island of Taiwan - called
"Formosa" by many foreign visitors in the 19th Century - and its various
peoples. These woodcuts, maps, linguistic data and textual representations
were originally published in European and North American books and journals
during the 19th Century, but are not easily accessible to those interested
in the history of Taiwan."

Site contents: (1) Introduction; (2) Maps [90+ maps]; (3) Texts [approx. 30
travelogues, reports and ethnographies in full text]; (4) Images [100+
woodcuts, scetches and etchings]; (5) Linguistic Data [seven tables of
comparative word lists]; (6) Timeline [under construction]; (7) Search; (8)
Feedback; (9) Credits.

Note: A fast internet connection and a higher quality monitor are suggested
for users of this site.

Resource suggested by Douglas Fix ([log in to unmask]) via the Asian
Studies WWW Monitor (26 Aug 2000).
