Chung Collection - Chinese Canadian materials

This collection is comprised of publications relating to Chinese immigration to Canada from 1898 to 1910. Included are two phrase books, one published in China in 1898 and another published in Vancouver in 1910, devised for Chinese emigrants to Canada or another British Commonwealth country. Using a combination of English and traditional Chinese, these books provide conversations and vocabulary useful for situations and professions encountered by immigrants in their new countries of residence.
