Syllabary of Chinese sounds. Research in China. Expedition of 1903-04, under the direction of Bailey Willis. [Extracted from Carnegie Institution of Washington Publication No. 54, Research in China, Volume I, Part II, pages 511-528]. Washington 1907.
4to. Pp. 511-528. Contemporary cloth. Old ownership signture on title. According to the introduction: "The subjoined Syllabary is mutatis mutandis identical with the 'Tabelle für die Laute des Chinesischen im Mandarin-Dialecte', submitted by me to the Far Eastern Section of the XIII International Congress of Orientalists held at Hamburg in September, 1902. ... In making use of spelling shown in the subjoined Syllabaray, Williams' 'Syllabic Dictionary of the Chinese Language' may serve as a key. By looking up in it the Chinese characters to be transcribed the sound appearing in column I (Williams) may be ascertained, while columns II and III contain my own and Wade's equivalents."
