PREFACE

The following Lectures were delivered during March, 1902, at Columbia University, in the city of New York, to inaugurate the foundation by General Horace W. Carpentier of the Dean Lung Chair of Chinese.

By the express desire of the authorities of Columbia University these Lectures are now printed, and they may serve to record an important and interesting departure in Oriental studies.

It is not pretended that Chinese scholarship will be in any way advanced by this publication. The Lectures, slight in themselves, were never meant for advanced students, but rather to draw attention to, and possibly arouse some interest in, a subject which will occupy a larger space in the future than in the present or in the past.

HERBERT A. GILES.


Cambridge, England,
April 15, 1902.

Giles discusses the Chinese language and some its unique features, but in this edition the Chinese characters show as small boxes on my Nexus 7 Nook app. A free version on the Kindle app shows then correctly. Am sorry to have spent the money on this one. If I knew how to return it, I would. J?nis Zelti??
