安文思《中国新志》,对庞大帝国最重要部分的描述。

伦敦,1688年。

 

书中附有一幅大折页的木刻北京平面图和两幅插图。同时代斑纹小牛皮装帧,后代重装精美书脊,烫金装饰,五道竹节,红色摩洛哥皮书名标签。书内有藏书票书名页有旧藏家签名。

 

此为《中国新志》英文版初版本,法文版童年在巴黎出版。此书由约翰·奥吉尔比翻译。1682年,比利时籍耶稣会士柏应理将安文思的葡萄牙文手稿从中国带回欧洲,后在罗马,由克劳德·贝努将其翻译成法文,他也根据安文思的资料制作了北京平面图。后人评论此书为“这也许是本世纪后半叶发表的最全面的关于中国的概述”。其中有一章特别有趣,专门讨论了汉语及其语音变体。

 

它还摘录了儒家四书之一《大学》中的中文文本,这可能是首次向欧洲读者展示中文文本的片段(蒙盖洛)。

MAGALHÃES (MAGAILLANS), GABRIEL DE: A New History of China, Containing a Description of the most Considerable Particulars of the Vast Empire. London, printed for Thomas Newborough, 1688.

 

8vo. Pp. (xxiv), 1-148, 193-352. With one large folding engraved plan of Beijing and two illustrations in the text. Contemporary full mottled calf, expertly rebacked, spine richly gilt with five raised bands and

red morocco title label, r.e. Bookplate (Thomas Weld, esq.) Old ownership inscription on title.

 

First English edition of "Nouvelle relation de la Chine" published in Paris the same year, translated by John Ogilby. It is based on the Jesuit missionary Magalhães' Portugese ms which was carried back to

Europe by Philippe Couplet in 1682. In Rome it was translated into French by Claude Bernou who also made the plan of Beijing on the basis of information in Magalhães' ms. "It is perhaps the most comprehensive

 and perceptive general description of China published during the second half of the Century" (Lach & Van Kley). Of special interest is a chapter devoted to the Chinese language and its phonetic variations.

Includes a fragment of Chinese text taken from Ta hsüeh (Great Learning), one of the Confucian Four Books, which probably was the first presentation of a fragment of Chinese text to a European audience. (Mungello).
