This antiquarian volume contains a detailed and accessible dual English and Cantonese dictionary. Complete with helpful instructions of its proper use and a vast catalogue of words, this volume constitutes a valuable resource for those with an interest in learning Cantonese, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. John Chalmers (1825 - 1899) was a Scottish missionary and the author of several works on the Chinse language - including the first translation into English of Lao Tzu's 'Tao Te Ching'. Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind, that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
