    Scope and Content of Collection

    The collection contains pamphlets, handbooks, railway guides, tourist brochures, and other printed Manchuria-related items, most issued in Great Britain (extracts from publications by the British Foreign Office, the Royal Geographical Society), Manchuria or Japan (issued by various departments of the Japanese government or the government of Manchoukuo [Manzhouguo]). The latter was a nominally independent puppet state set up by the Japanese in Manchuria, which existed from 1931 to 1945. The Japanese installed Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty, as the emperor of Manzhouguo and declared the country independent from China on February 18, 1932.
    Related monographs and serials pertaining to Manchuria have been cataloged separately and can be searched on Pegasus, the UCSB Libraries online catalog.
