The Chinese Collection of London Missionary Society Available Online Now!

Just want to relay a post by Ryan Dunch of University of Alberta in FOREASt.

A special collection of over 500 books collected by LMS (London Missionary Society) missionaries in China during the late Qing period has been digitized and made available online.

Most of these books are printed monographs including "Christian tracts and mission publications on scientific topics", as well as non-mission books, manuscript items, Taiping editions, and Japanese editions of missionary publication in Chinese.

The collection can be accessed through the National Library of Austrialia catalog at[]=pi%3Anla.gen*&lookfor=London+Missionary+Society&type=all .
