[title in Chinese characters, transliterated as] Fu min ce.
Shanghai: [in Chinese transliterated as:] Mei hua shu guan [i.e., American Presbyterian Mission Press], 1911. 8vo. (22 cm, 8.625"). [156] pp. Dr. W.E. Macklin and Yushu Li collaborated on several translations of works from English into Chinese, and George's Progress and Poverty was their most important. It is here in the third edition (as per note on the English title-page on the verso of the Chinese title-page); the first appeared in 1899 and the second in 1903.    Dr. Macklin (1860–1947) was a Canadian medical missionary of the Disciples of Christ Mission to China who operated a clinic and dispensary in Nanking beginning in 1886. He also established schools and translated, as noted previously, several works into Chinese.    Of this edition, WorldCat locates complete copies at three U.S. institutions (NYPL, Stanford, Johns Hopkins) and apparently partial copies at four others (University of Chicago, Princeton, Rutgers, UVa). Stapled in original red wrappers; spine and edges sunned, extremities rubbed, small inked numeral in one corner. Very good.
