"The Expedition of the French Sinologist Paul Pelliot to Chinese Turkestan and China, 1906-1909"

Jean-Pierre Drège
Director Emeritus, Ecole française d’Extrême-Orient
Paul Pelliot himself briefly described the archeological expedition he led in Turkestan and China at the beginning of 20th century and that we know about it is usually limited to the facts stated in Pelliot’s published reports at that period. And yet it is possible to propose a better evaluation of the ins and outs of his mission which seemed important for both French scholars and economic investors. This can be made thanks to the notebook written by Pelliot during his trip, recently published, and to his personal papers kept now in the Guimet museum in Paris.
