The imperial ambitions of various global powers are immediately evident on this colorful map, published by Rand McNally in 1901. French Indo-China, Portuguese East Timor, Dutch Malaysia, British Hong Kong, the American Philippines and Russian Dalian are just a few examples labeled within the image. Siam, Japan, China, and Korea are the few independent nations, and even their sovereignty (with the exception of Japan) wouldn’t remain intact for much longer.

The map was issued to accompany the first volume of The Far East and the New America, a series designed to explore Asian geography, history, culture, and especially economic opportunities at a period of rapidly increasing American involvement in the region. The 118 page booklet covers Japan and Hawaii, and includes numerous photographs and illustrations – notably a bird’s eye view of Hong Kong harbor.
