The Prussian-born Protestant missionary Karl Friedrich August Gützlaff (1803-51) sought to spread Christianity in the Far East. A gifted linguist, he sailed to Siam and worked on a translation of the Bible into Thai. The British missionary Robert Morrison had fired his interest in China, and Gützlaff later focused his evangelising efforts there, learning several dialects and distributing translated literature. The present work, featuring an introductory chapter by fellow missionary William Ellis on Chinese attitudes to foreign influence, was first published in 1834. Gützlaff had left Siam in 1831 in a Chinese junk trading along the coast of China. The next year, as an interpreter aboard an East India Company vessel, he also visited Korea and Okinawa. The third voyage recounted here describes the places and peoples encountered from Canton to Manchuria. Also reissued in this series are Gützlaff's Sketch of Chinese History (1834) and China Opened (1838)
Polynesian researches: Hawaii by William Ellis( Book )

23 editions published between 1825 and 2013 in English and German and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Journal of William Ellis is a classic of Pacific literature, ranking with the journals of Captain Cook and his men as a record of life and customs of the traditional Hawaiians. No other book rivals it as an account of the life of the Hawaiians in the early 19th century. For readers not yet acquainted with it, there is the pleasure awaiting them of a new and eciting venture into Hawaiian history. William Ellis (1794-1872) a young English missionary with a strong ethnological bent, was an explorer with a keen eye for local color and detail. As one member of a pioneering group that undertook a thorough survey of the island of Hawaii he made excellent use of his talents to set down everything he and his colleagues could learn about the region and the people. The journal is presented here in digital format without abridgments and much in the same format with which it was introduced to its original audience. The original illustrations are retained-the new introduction and the index-are designed to enhance its value. The reader is certain to find it worth every moment of his time
