Self description: "This site provides information relating to the Morrison
Collection of Chinese Books at the School of Oriental and African Studies
(SOAS). This collection was formed by Dr. Robert Morrison (1782-1834), the
first Protestant missionary to China, whilst living in Canton and Macau
between 1807 and 1824. Information about the collections of William Marsden
(1754-1836) and Sir George Thomas Staunton (1781-1859), inherited by SOAS
from King's College London, are also included."

biography of Robert Morrison and an introduction to the collection.

(Index of the shelfmarks of the bound items in the Morrison Chinese Library
as held at University College London (UCL) during the nineteenth-century);
(5) The Williams Report (Extract from the 1854 Report on the Contents of

(Summary of the contents of William Marsdens's collection books and
manuscripts in Oriental and African languages that were transferred to SOAS
from King's College London in 1920); (7) The Staunton Collection (List of
