This is the first Chinese-English dictionary devoted solely to the premodern language. Being a practical lexicon of more than 8,000 characters, arranged alphabetically by Pinyin romanization, it is meant to facilitate the reading and translating of historical, literary, and religious texts dating from approximately 500 BCE to 1000 CE. Being primarily a dictionary of individual characters and the words they represent, it also includes an abundance of alliterative and echoic binomes as well as accurate identifications of hundreds of plants, animals, and assorted technical terms in various fields. It aims to become the English-language resource of choice for all those seeking assistance in reading texts dating from the Warring States period through the Tang dynasty. Previous Chinese-English dictionaries have persistently mixed together without clarification all eras and styles of Chinese. But written Chinese in its 3,000 year history has changed and evolved even more than English has in its mere millennium, with classical and medieval Chinese differing more from modern standard Chinese than the language of Beowulf; or even that of Chaucer differs from modern English.

A database of previously-published English translations of official edicts and memorials from nineteenth century China's Qing dynasty, spanning from the Macartney Mission in 1793 to the abdication of the last emperor in 1912. The Peking Gazette provides insight into the Manchu state and its subjects as they grappled with imperial decline, re-engaged with the wider world, and began mapping the path to China's contemporary rise. Contains the voices of Manchu emperors, Han officials, gentry leaders, and peasant spokesmen as they discussed and debated the most important political, social, and cultural movements, trends, and events of their day, and provides insight into the policies and attitudes of the emperors, the ideas and perspectives of the officials, and the mentality and worldviews of the Han, Mongol, Manchu, Muslim, and Tibetan subjects of the Great Qing Empire.

  • Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals (1817-1949)
  • Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China, 1854-1949
Missionary, sinology, and literary periodicals: A collection of 17 English-language periodicals published in, or about, China during a period of over 130 years, extending from 1817 until 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded. This corresponds to the periods of the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican Era (1911-1949), when China experienced radical and often traumatic transformations from an inward-looking imperial dynasty into a globally engaged republic with modern approaches to politics, literature, education, public morality, and intellectual life.
Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China: This collection provides primary source material for the study of China and its relations with the West in the late Qing and Republican periods. The records in this collection, including official correspondence, dispatches, reports, memoranda, and private and confidential letters, offer evidence of Chinese life, the economy and politics through the Taiping Rebellion, the Boxer Rebellion, the Revolution of 1911, the May 30 Movement, the two Sino-Japanese Wars, and the Chinese Civil War.

"From its roots as an Anglican evangelical movement driven by lay persons, this resource encompasses publications from the CMS and the latterly integrated South American Missionary Society. Documenting missionary work from the 19th to the 21st century, the periodicals include news, journals and reports offering a unique perspective on global history and cultural encounter."
This online portal makes available periodicals from the Church Missionary Society Archive, a collection relevant to missiology, world Christianity, and global history. Against the backdrop of colonialism and its decline, this resource covers themes from gender and families to medicine, education, the development of native churches, political conflict, social reform, linguistics, and exploration. Founded in 1799 as an Anglican evangelical movement, the Church Missionary Society (CMS) has been active across the globe, proving one of the key agents of evangelism in the non-Western world. The publications featured in Church Missionary Society Periodicals span more than 200 years of history. The periodicals were key in promoting the work of the society, fundraising, and reporting from a number of countries as well as communicating within mission communities. They offer an interesting perspective on world events through the eyes of an organization which shared a unique relationship with the countries and people with which it worked. Detailed woodcut illustrations and thousands of photographs offer a further angle on the societies' work as well as thought-provoking presentations of indigenous cultures. Church Mission Society (CMS) Periodicals database is comprised of two modules: I) Global Missions and Contemporary Encounters, 1804-2009 - made up of periodicals published by the CMS and the South American Missionary Society from 1804-2009; and II) Medical Journals, Asian Missions and the Historical Record, 1816-1986 - and includes periodicals and annual reports published by the CMS and its auxiliaries, and the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society, from 1816-1986. Module I's archival source is from the CMS collection at the Crowther Mission Studies Library, Oxford, UK, and Module II's materials originate from the CMS collection at the Cadbury Research Library, University of Birmingham, UK.
