Satire on All Things Chinese

R.R.L. Fernbach, 1923

A Child’s Primer of Things Chinese is a questionable publication from 1923, printed by Tientsin Press in China. It mimics a child’s primer and presents satirical rhymes that pose colonial views of Chinese cultural stereotypes by British observers like Robert Fernbach in the early twentieth century. Divided into 30 ‘Lessons’ with hand drawn illustrations, the publication is an historical document that elucidates perturbing attitudes that were indulged during this colonial era.

An ebook facsimile of the original, containing c.80 pages, including 25 illustrations.
