About This Item

1836 History of CHINA Asia Confucius Buddhist MAGIC OCCULT Alchemy Ghosts

John Francis Davis was a 19th-century British politician who became the governor of Hong Kong during his diplomatic journeys to China. He published a broad but extensive history of the Chinese people which became popular in England. However, while this work does cover a wide variety of topics, it does include a section devoted to Confucian and Buddhist religious beliefs, pagan and mystical rites, living sacrifices, occult numbers and Pythagoras, temples and monasteries, magicians and alchemists, Chinese superstitions, spells and talismans, and ghosts and divination! Fascinating contents and illustrations!
