Now Publishing at Macao, in China, A DICTIONARY OF THE CHINESE LANGUAGE;


First, Chinese and English, arranged according to the Radicals; next English

and Chinese; and lastly, Chinese and English, arranged Alphabetically. The First Part will contain about Twenty Numbers, and the other Parts taken together, nearly the same, making about Forty Numbers in all. These are to be sold at Half-a-Guinea each number. Two Numbers are already Published. Several years will be required to complete the remainder.


By Black, PARBURY, AND ALLEN, LEADENIALL STREET. Persons who wish to do so may Subscribe to the First Part only; it will be a complete Chinese Dictionary in itself, containing about Forty Thousand Characters. It contains many Quotations from the Chinese Classics, and other original works, which illustrate the opinions and usages of ihat People.

The Author of the above Work, the Rev. R. Morrison, has directed his attention to the collection of Materials for it during the last ten years. The Honourable the East India Company has generously undertaken the whole expense of Printing and Paper for an Edition of Seven Hundred and Fifty Copies, of which Six Hundred and Fifty Copies are given to the Author, to be disposed of, as a remuneration for the very considerable labour which he has bestowed upon it, and which he must continue to bestow, should Divine Providence grant him life and health, till the whole be completed.

From a misunderstanding on the part of Mr. Morrison's Friends, in England, they have promised that the whole should not exceed Ten Guineas. To those who have already Subscribed on the faith of this the promise will be inviolably adhered to. But, at the present price, viz. Half-a-Guinea a Number, which is very moderate, for a Work that contains so much of the Chinese Character, Twenty Numbers will amount to Ten Guineas, which is only one half of what the Three Parts are expected to make; the other balf then must be given for nothing, or the Author must depart from bis original fulness of definition, which would render the Work comparatively of little value. He purposes, however, to persevere in the same method which he has bitherto observed, in the hope of facilitating to Englishmen, and to the Western World, the acquisition of the Chinese Language; which, whether viewed in itself; its peculiar structure; or with respect to its antiquity; its having been for nearly 4000 years the Language of so large a portion of the human species; and its still being the written medium, in Private and in Public Life; in Literature, in Arts and in Government, of the most extensive Empire on earth;-viewed in any, or in all of these respects, it seems to deserve the attention of every inquisitive and curious mind.

It is therefore to be understood, that the whole Work will be faithfully sent to those who have already Subscribed, and for the Price stated by Mr. Morrison's Friends, viz. Ten Guineas; but to those who may Subscribe after the Publication of this Notice, the Work will be Sold at Half-a-Guinea a Number. If the Work should exceed Forty Numbers no charge will be made for those above that. It shall not cost the Subscribers more than Twenty Guineas.

Canton, China, November 3, 1817.
