About This Item

Two volumes, small 4to (26 x 19 cm), pp.x, 147, 410, 2 large folding maps, coloured in outline; [iv], (411)-933, [1, blank]. With printed English and Chinese text. A very good set in original cloth. Minor wear to extremities. Edges foxed, but text clean. The first translation into a European language of the Spring and autumn annals (Chunqiu), a monthly chronicle of the ancient Chinese kingdom of Lu from 722 to 479 BCE, made by James Legge (1815-1891), the pioneering Scottish Sinologist and missionary, who spent more than thirty years in Malacca and Hong Kong. The text includes Legge's translation of the most famous commentary on this important Confucian text, the Zhuozhuan (Zhuo's commentary). Sir Cecil Clementi (1875-1947) served as an administrator in Hong Kong and China from 1899. He was Governor of Hong Kong from 1925 to 1930 and then of the Straits Settlements until 1934.
