Honestly, the first thing I want translated are those unauthorized Sherlock Holmes sequels from right after he was first translated into Chinese, the stories that describe Holmes fighting fox spirits and other beings from Chinese myths.
The airships are cool, but I really love the mixture of Chinese art landscape and European (sometimes colonial) architecture. If I were ever to give a lecture on 'the cultured gaze' I'd open with these.
...actually, the gothic church and the multi-storey building (Canton concession go-down? Military barracks? Governor's residence?) are so orthogonal to the frame that I think they might have been copied from collections of architectural engravings or 'Scenes of Old England' or similar, popular at the time.
