This project started in 2004 with simple lists of titles found in libraries in Vienna/Austria – listing books on China (Greater China) published between 1477 and 1939. The blog Bibliotheca Sinica 2.0 takes the concept to a new level in providing links to digitized copies in libraries and repositories which are freely accessible.
As this is a work in progress, the lists that started this project are part of the project – listing more than 3200 titles (October 2010).The titles are arranged alphabetically by name of (main) author.
N.N.(Books where no author is given)
Lists were compiled using data from library catalogues. As holdings were not cross-checked in autopsy [unless specifically noted], there is no guarantee that an item is available at the moment. In case you need to access a specific item, it is therefore suggested to check the catalogue and/or contact the respective library.
