The Author's obligations to the Rev. Mr. Chalmers, for the Indexes of Subjects and Proper Names, the Essay on Ancient Chinese As tronomy, printed in the Prolegomena, and for various suggestions and assistance in the progress of the Work, have been great. Nor must he fail to acknowledge gratefully the services rendered to him by Wang T'aou, a graduate of Soo-chow. This scholar, far excelling in classical lore any of his countrymen whom the Author had pre viously known, came to Hongkong in the end of 1863, and placed at his disposal all the treasures of a large and well-selected library. At the same time, entering with spirit into his labours, now explain ing, now arguing, as the case might be, he has not only helped but enlivened many a day of toil.
Mr Frederick Stewart, Head Master of the Government Schools in Hongkong, and Mr. G. M. Bain, of the China Mail Otfice, have very kindly aided in the correction for the press. Few typographical mistakes have escaped their notice. Some errors in Chinese names should have been detected by the Author, but escaped his notice through the pre-occupation of his mind with other matters.
