Hallo Collectors, Tank You for click UCN uniquecollection.wordpress.com CyberNews this day.
I. SPECIAL INFORMATIONS
After seeking almost two month this day UCN staff found the very rare iinformatif about :
1. The Historic of China Resistent war
The author written very detailed about the Chiang Northward expedition against the China Warlord forces and suthward expedition against the Mao Communist people forces.
The best information read at The China Resistant war collections.
The author written about the Dai Nippon army strategic” attack and reinforcement” from Manchuria to Shnaghai until the beginning of Dai Nippon war in 1937.
The best informations from this vintage book read at The China Resistance War Collections.
2.The informations about Geologist Explorations in China between 1914-1937.
When the author arrived at Peking on May 16th 1914 to take up his appointment as geological adviser to the Chinese Gvernment, he turned a page in his life’s book . A much later page, written fr the most part by other hands than him, was turned when he visited Nanking on December 11th and 12th 1936.
In the year 1911-12 a proud and ancient imperial edifice,time down and wheater-beaten, had fallen to the ground and the new men who were to build a fresh one were still somewhat dazed and bewildered,wondering how to begin. At the head of the department of Mines, to which I (the author) considered myself to belong, was an amiable little mining engineer, trained in France; a well-meaning and conscientiuous man , but scarcely a pioneer in difficult learned man of the times. Above him was the Menister of agriculture, a learned man of old school, famous of his beautiful handwritting and for the model community he had made of his native village, but too was hardly one to use a motor plough.
But after some months had passed there came a man whoose whole type was symptomatic of a new age. This was a yound geologist who had studied first at Cambridge and afterwards with Professor Gregory in Galsgow. He was just back from a tour of exploration in Yunnan and was nominally chief f China’s projected geological survey.but a chief without staff , as he put it rather sarcastically at our first meeting.he was DR V.K.Ting.
Meanwhile, we Swedish colleagues had achieved a certain success at the very beginning, namely the discovery of the Lung-Yen ores. I(the author) recieved orders from the then President, Yuan Shih-kai, who was aman of a great gifts but hopelessly restricted by the old fashioned ideaa of Imperial times,to go to the Palace and submit a report on what was known of the iron ores of China. After a two hours’demonstration of all our material Yuan summed up the situation in a masterly way, and a few weaks later, in January 1916, he (Yuan Shih-kai ) issued an order for the appointment of a considerable staff for Geological Survey which till then had only existed on paper.
On the completion of the school cource the authorities showed their confidence by inviting me(the author) to examine these youn man (DR Ting) during a week’s field work on one og the great coald-fields of North China and to recommend the best of them for appointment as geologist.
When my train(author0 arrived in the arly morning at the nanking station i recognized nothing except that the clenliness and easy poltiness f the railway staff, the representative of the travel bureu and the prters, which I had found in Shanghai were the same here. The dirty colies who formerly swarmed abut platforms and stations were gone. and when an hur later I sat in a car spinning alng the great avanue which runs through the city it struck me that I was looking at a new twn which had suddenly rise out f the grund. n the right hand i the caught sight of a well-proportined brick building within an open yard planted with trees could nt be musch more that a year old. It occured to me that this ought not t be an rdinary government building but was more probably a modern,peacefully situated scientific institution. Hardly had I thougyt this out when my eye caught the Chinese inscription and I found ,I had reached my goal, The Geological survey of China, in this new home in Nanking.
Here I found the haind-painted originalmof the map of China published by Ting and Wong in celebration of the diamond Jubilee of the leading newspaper Shun Pao. This map had been universally admired for the wealth of its cartography of the vast empire, but also for its fine modern production, with graduated colours indicating the altitude.
But let us go back to the museum. We entered first the mineralogical-petrographic section, arranged in two alternate types of show-case, one for inerals and the other for rocks. The suitability of such an arrangement may be open to discussion,but it has a handsome and ingenious appearance.
Then we went up to the top floor where the archeological material is exhibited,with the great, amazingly rich finds from Chou Kuo tien, and here we saw first of all te splendid sepulchral urns fromKansu, which we we had i stockholm for examination and which had now been moved with the reat from Peking. but then we came to finds from Chuo Kou tien, the home of Peking Man.
When in 1922 DR Ting was placed at the head of a new coal-mining enterprise in Southern Manchuria.
In December 1935 DR Ting,while on a geological expedition in the province of Hunan, was accidentally posioned by carbon monoxide in his room at Chines hotel and Wong at once secured the best doctor in Nanking and flew to Hunan.later specialist were also summond from the great medical collage in Paking. But on January 5th the ravaged lung ceased to function. China had lost one of her best sons, a man equally admirable for his perspicacity as an organizer, his keen critical acuntences and his unflinching loyality to this those who had once gained his friendship ( I hope the China government gift him the honor as the National China Geolgist hero-Dr Iwan S.)
(6) Nanking,SApril 1937
Regarded purely as a geographical feauture, Nanking possests a neighbour of the first importance, and that is the Yangtze river. Just outside Hsi Kuan, The Maritime Customs, the mighty river rolls its grey andmuddy stream between low banks.
the southerncapital would occupy quite common place situation on the flat plain of the delta, didnot the purple Mountain len a peculiar charm to the surrounding.
