About the exhibition

An exhibition of material from UCL Library Services Special Collections. Opened by Professor Moira Yip, UCL Pro-Provost for China, Hong Kong and Macao, on 7th February 2008.

There is a long history of contact between Europe and China and of European interest in all aspects of the country - its culture and language, its geography and history, its society and traditions. That interest has long been shared by UCL as one of the first universities in Britain to make provision for the study of China.

This exhibition sought to illustrate UCL's early concern with China and through historical items from UCL Library Services Special Collections show the extent of western fascination with China from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
