An Alphabetical Index To The Chinese Encyclopaedia

by Giles, L. (London: 1911) This is an index to the massive encyclopedia of Chinese scholarship, Ku Chin T'u Shu Chi Ch'eng, published in 1726. In the Introduction Giles surveys briefly the traditional arrangement of Chinese encyclopedic works. He also stetches the history of the Ku Chin T'u Shu Chi Ch'eng, gives a terse introduction to the contents of each section of the work, and discusses the internal arrangement of the subheadings in each section. The index is a translation, and alphabetization of the 6,109 subheadings with Chinese characters and textual locations. This index is a necessary aid for the Western user of the Ku Chin T'u Shu chi Ch'eng. Cw107
