Peking, 1940. [Far East Diplomacy] GOVERNMENT PUBLICATION. Octavo (22 x 15cm), pp. ii; 150 . Publisher's plain paper covers with titles to spine and front cover. Quite heavily browned, as expected. Only mild spotting to covers, and very light edge wear. Near fine. Published while Beijing was occupied by Japanese forces during the Second Sino-Japanese War, this selection of papers describes the progress of the Simla Accord, which was negotiated between China, Tibet and the British administration in India. It attempted to define the boundaries of 'Outer Tibet', though the Chinese representative Ivan Chen did not agree to the final settlement in July 1914. Indeed, the British administration in India did not itself begin using the unratified 'McMahon Line' as the official boundary between India and Tibet until the late 1930's, when the Accord was officially published for the first time.
