With this volume, Roderich Ptak tries to build bridges between China's South and the overseas world, between the real and the imagined, and philological and other dimensions. The book comprises six studies (based on different lectures ) which deal with animals in traditional Chinese texts from pre-Han times to the Qing period. The animals mentioned can be related to trade, daily life, literature, etc. with a regional focus on South China and the maritime world. The birds and beasts are instrumentalized for various purposes and in various ways occasionally appearing as exotic creatures, but their zoological identification remains difficult. The first paper comments on animal terms in the Confucian Classics; among other things it addresses the issue of "literary" versus "real" species. The following three contributions look at late medieval and early modern themes: methodological questions surrounding the maritime trade in animals; references to camels in ethnographic and other accounts carrying data on Africa and the Near East; and the shipment of horses from Hainan to the Chinese mainland. The fifth essay investigates the bird names listed in "Aomen jilue," a Qing gazetteer on Macau. Some of the descriptions associated with these birds go back to Jesuit records. Jesuit works including the famous Ricci map form the theme of the last study which discusses how animals were presented in these sources.

This volume is a study of Chinese food from a cultural and historical perspective. Its focus is on traditional China before establishment of the People's Republic. It identifies and provides comprehensive information on a broad range of Chinese food plants and animals for general readers, as well as for specialists whose interests have led them to questions relating to the food of China. Readers will find discussions regarding origins, how things came to be, time and place of food-plant and animal domestication, the spread of plants and animals from and to China, and other historical questions regarding the foods used by the Chinese people. The book is written with Canton and the southeast as points of departure, but embraces all of China and is directed towards people unfamiliar with China.
