Hosted by the Department of History at Reed College, this attractive digital library contains images of woodcuts, maps, and textual representations of Formosa (Taiwan) published in Europe and North America during the nineteenth century. The 90+ maps are selected via a menu or an interactive map of the island. The full texts of 27 travelogues, reports, and ethnographies are listed alphabetically by author, while the woodcuts (over 100) are grouped by category or artist's portfolio. Additional features include seven comparative word-list tables, an internal search engine, and a timeline (under construction). An excellent resource for students and scholars of both Formosa/Taiwan and Western depictions of the East.
