Notes: "The author of this translation is not certainly known. The manuscript was found among the papers of a gentleman named Wilkinson, who occasionally resided much at Canton, and was a student of Chinese. The date of the papers, 1719, was the last year he spent in China; and he died in 1736. The three first volumes were in English and the fourth in Portuguese. Dr. Percy ... translated the last volume into English, and edited the work."--Wylie, A. Notes on Chinese lit. 1867, p. xxiii.
