Xin yue quan shu [New Testament], published at [London Missionary Press]
Shanghai: London Missionary Press, 1856. Paperback. Good + overall. The "Delegates' Version' was primarily the work of the English missionaries Walter Medhurst, John Stronach and William Milne and several Chinese scholars, in particular Want Tao, who later worked on translations of Chinese classics with James Legge and spent three years in Britain. It was completed and first printed in 1850. This edition was printed in Shanghai,1856 at the London Missionary Press. Powered by a pair of oxen, it was the most prolific press in Shanghai during the 1850s. Lacks final leaf, complete only through chapter 19 of Revelation (or 22). Worldcat locates no more than 5 copies. 8vo, with front wrapper an remnant of back wrapper. With a tattered Bernard Quaritch envelope from 1958, with the name "Dr. S. P. Chu. Jan. 14, 1944" above the address, and "New Testament in classical Chinese 1856. (Dr. Chu.)." on the verso. The address seems to be to Mrs. E. W. Seston, Marine Biological Association, Citadel Hill, Plymouth.
