Descrizione

While this work was passing through the press, the mournful intelligence of the death of its distinguished Author reached this country.

Dr. Gutzlaff died at Victoria Hong Kong, on the 9th of August 1851, at the age of forty-eight of dropsy, preceded by an attack of rheumatic gout.

The Publishers, being desirous of prefixing to this posthumous publication a memoir of its Author, applied to his friend Sir George Staunton (to whom the work is dedicated), for some particulars of the Author's life; they also addressed one of the executors of Dr. Gutzlaff on the subject, and were favoured by these gentlemen with such materials as were available for the purpose.
