The annual reports of the Municipal Council of the French Concession on line
As part of a collaboration between the Institut d’Asie Orientale and the Institute of History (历史研究所) of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (上海社会科学院), the Virtual Shanghai Project is making available a set of annual reports (Compte rendu de la gestion) of the French Municipal Council (Commission d’administration municipale) of the former French Concession in Shanghai. The Institute of History generously made available its collection of Compte rendu de la gestion for this major digitizing operation and to share it with the worldwide community of scholars.
The current set does not include all the years during which the French Concession existed in Shanghai, but we hope to supplement our collection as we find additional issues available for digitizing. The set of Compte rendu de la gestion currently includes the following years: 1910-1926, 1929, 1932-1936, 1939-1940. All the files are available in text-searchable format.
