The author has researched and compiled a series of inventories of Asia-related documents in Canadian institutions in order to make these collections accessible to researchers unable to visit them in person. These Asia-related documents from government departments, executive offices, military records, and archives with reference to missionary endeavors include the Arab countries, Turkey, Iran and The Pacific Islands. The index has approximately 50,000 entries and is the key to the inventory bringing together the material in the missionary records, the national, provincial, local and university collections, and the photograph collections. A very fine, clean set.
