Giovanni Stary's "What's Where" in Manchu Literature is an attempt to survey the known corpus of Manchu literature. In some respects, as will be seen, the title is kind of a misnomer. The book actually provides little direct information as to precisely where these texts are located. However, it does an admirable job of surveying what texts are actually known to be available. As stated in the Introduction, this book is intended to be the first step towards creating a union catalogue of Manchu literature. It is not itself a union catalogue but rather is a guide to catalogues that "aims at offering a simple bibliographical list based on the maximum available number of catalogues, inventories, and book-lists" (p. VII).
