One beautifully bound Chinese book with silk cover and gold flecked case presented to Dr. Winger by Hung Nien Cheng (President of Chi-nan University, see MC201194a,b). The book appears to be similar to MC2011/94a,b in content, but this is an elaborate edition. The subject appears to be the history of China, or an area in China, and contains fabulous architectural illustrations and photographs.

What makes this album interesting in the amount of history it records. There are articles about Church of the Brethren missionaries, the Highland Avenue Church of the Brethren in Elgin, Illinois, Church of the Brethren ministers and leaders, as well as personal stories about the compiler and folks this individual knows. It is a shame that the source remains unknown.
