Hertslet's China Treaties Compiled by-Name:Hertslet,Edward
- Hertslet,Godfrey E. P. Assisted by-Name:Parkes,Edward
The first edition of this work, which outlines China's treaty engagements with various foreign powers, was published by Sir Edward Hertslet (1824â€“1902) in 1896. The two-volume third edition reissued here was published by his son Godfrey in 1908, and took account of new treaties in the intervening twelve years relevant to the Chinese sphere of influence. The work is remarkably inclusive, and cross-refers between similar treaties with China and different Western powers, as well as containing ancillary material such as a ground-plan of the foreign legation district in Beijing, and British government documents relevant to the various treaties. This edition is of particular interest for students of international law and diplomacy, as it covers the regulations governing relations between China and Britain in the year in which the last imperial Chinese ruler ascended the throne. Volume 2 contains relevant British documents including Acts of Parliament and Orders in Council.
