A sketch of Chinese history : ancient and modern by Karl Friedrich August Gützlaff( Book )

3 editions published in 1834 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remarkable yet controversial, 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 translating 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. He also worked for the East India Company, notably serving as an interpreter during negotiations for the Treaty of Nanking. Also reissued in this series are his Journal of Three Voyages along the Coast of China (1834) and China Opened (1838). The present work, published in two volumes in 1834, aimed to diminish Anglophone ignorance of China's vast history. Volume 1 surveys contemporary Chinese geography, government and culture before tracing Chinese history from mythological times to the end of the Ming dynasty in 1644
