Fan, Fa-ti.

“Fa-ti Fan’s study of the encounter between the British culture of the naturalist and the Chinese culture of the Qing is both a delight and a relevation. The topic has scarcely been addressed by historians of science, and this work fills important gaps in our knowledge of British scientific practice in a noncolonial context and of Chinese reactions to Western science in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.”
