Catalogue of the Protestant Missionary Works in Chinese,

Harvard-Yenching Library 

  Compiled by John Yung-Hsiang Lai. Boston: G.K. Hall, 1980. 


COVERAGE The Harvard-Yenching Library contains hundreds of writings by Protestant missionaries who worked in China in the 19th century. and in the early period of the 20th century. Materials contributed in 1949 and 1962 by the American Board of Commissioners of Foreign Missions (ABCFM) and the first American Missionary Society (founded in 1810) form the nucleus of the Harvard-Yenching Missonary Collection. In 1976 those materials,along with other related titles, became part of the library’s rare book collection.

This collection documents the missionary effort to proselytize Protestant Christianity in a hostile environment, since both the government and people considered these foreign ideas subversive. Among the accomplishments of these missionaries were many Chinese-language publications written by the missionaries themselves after long and careful language studies. The publications ranged from religious texts to secular knowledge tracts. Their use of Chinese, while rarely elegant, was fascinating, and is well represented in this collection.

The collection includes many of the Chinese-language periodicals, early translations of the Bible and theological works, books on the history of the Christian Church, old dictionaries and books in Romanized dialects and the earliest Chinese books on Western history, geography, science and technology. It is a valuable source for the study of the history of Protestant missions in China, China's modernization, and her relations with the West.

ACCESS The materials are classified according to the expanded Harvard-Yenching Classification scheme. The Catalog is in dictionary arrangement, with author, title, subject, and “see” reference cards interfiled alphabetically.

Headings of Chinese names and titles are in Wade-Giles Romanization, with descriptions written in the original script. Authors’ names that appear in Chinese or are lacking from the texts have been carefully verified. Analyses or reference notes are supplied where necessary. Devices are gien for identifying early works published prior to 1860 and also for finding works printed in various Chinese colloquials.

SPECIFICATIONS  Catalog cards were reproduced by offset on durable, acid-free paper with 10 cards per 8 1/2 x 11 page. One volume bound in Class A library binding.
