Seeking Information on Historical Currency Exchange Rates


I’m looking for exchange rates for conversion of China (taels and/or cash) to the currencies of Britain, France, and the U.S., respectively, for the time frame 1700-1911 (or later).  Note: the U.S. mint didn't open until 1792. 

I have consulted general text books, references, monographs, and online sites but the data provided is not always consistent because over this period there were tael-cash exchange differences; regional differences, inflation, currency reform in Britain and France, etc.

Help with part or all will be appreciated.

Hitch served for a time at the DOD level of American government as an Assistant Secretary for Defense.

Re: Fulton on Gerwarth, 'The Vanquished: Why the First World War Failed to End'

Quite worth considering this argument, the First War did not end until the Second ended. Those decade and half or so years, until mid-late 30s, were very much a continued history of 'respite' to settle many domestic issues and postwar I issues, including govts. and political power. it is not without consequence nor coincidence, the leaders of WW II on both sides, enemy and Allied arose during WW I.

There are some other matters as well but will leave for another day.
