Williams, Jack F.
This study is an extensive bibliography of government-published maps relating to China that have been produced by the United States, Japan, China, Great Britain, Germany, France, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Several introductory, narrative chapters discuss the development of modern mapping in China and various mapping activities of the six other countries. The major portion of the document is an annotated listing of map selections from the 20th century. Arrangement is by country. Within each country's section, the map entries are listed alphabetically by agencies and then according to scale. Each map listing includes such information as reliefs, boundaries, hydrography, transportation, cities and towns, and vegetation. Size, number of pages, translation, and general coverage are also included in the general annotations where appropriate. Several appendices conclude the document. (Author/JR)
