[GPGT] ancient book. What language is this?

Besides the obvious Chinese text.. there is this strange language?

Looks like Manchu/Mongolia but doesn't entirely fit in

Not Tibetan, Japanese .. hmm








Also strange? What's the content of the book about?

Super random.. suddenly got mention Ryuku (琉球).. then suddenly talk about 黑人 and then demons... Then talk about farming technology


Superstition? Encyclopedia? Religious? Political?

They got talk about

天竺国 (India)
交趾国 (Vietnam)

These are their ancient Chinese names

Hi

It's my passion. I love Chinese culture and love to collect old books as my main interest.

What makes you think its 18-19c?

Hmm Manchu or Mongol?

Or those smaller tribe Jin / Tartary language?

The script to my uneducated eye looks more Mongol than Manchu
