The first American edition came out in Philadelphia: Carey, Lea and Blanchard, 1837.

1837 following:

William and Robert Chambers, Chamber’s Educational Course. Edinburgh, 1837 following. A set of about 100 small volumes each introducing one field of knowledge, this was another attempt by the Chambers group to popularize new knowledge beyond their encyclopedia. At least one of the volumes was translated into Chinese, namely Fryer’s 1885 translation of the 1852 volume Political economy, for use in schools, and for private instruction by “Economy” (in fact it was written by John Hill Burton), in this series as Zuozhi chuyan 佐治芻言. See Xixue fuqiang congshu 1896 in this bibliography. For the translation of this volume, see the Trescott article in the bibliography at the end.

Xiguo jinshi huibian 西國近事彙編,Shanghai, Shanghai Arsenal 上海機器造局, 1873. 4 j., 4 vols. (American) Jinkaili (美)金楷理 (Carl Traugott Kreyer 1839-1914) dictated, Yao Fen 姚棻 noted down. Translations from contemporary Western papers in chronological order about the year Tongzhi 癸酉 (1873). The dating on the cover says 光緒癸酉, which is an inexisting date. It must mean that it is a work published probably in the first years of the Guangxu reign in 1875, but deals with the international events in 1873. The Shanghai Arsenal published this as a series each year until 1897.
The later issues were put together by other authors such as 蔡錫齡 Cai Xiling.

Putong baike xin dacidian 普通百科新大辭典, Huang Ren 黃人 (Huang Moxi 黃摩西, 1866-1913) comp. Shanghai: Zhongduo cidian gongsi 中國詞典公司, 1911 (宣統 3年5月), 15ce in 2 han, printed on commission for 國學扶輪社. The sequence of the entries follows the purely formal criterion of stroke number with a serial number within each stroke (such as 13 strokes, number 312) for easy retrieval. Below the name of the entry is the category under which it is grouped, such as shi 史 (history) or wen 文 (writing). There are 14 such categories.A separate index groups all entries according to these categories.

Guoxue fu lun she 國學扶輪社 ed., Wenke dacidian 文科大詞典 (Conceptual dictionary of the Humanities), Shanghai, Zhongguo ci dian gong si 中國詞典公司 ,1911. 12 vols., 2224 pp. Metal font printing. Preface by Lin 林xx xx.Reprints in 2 vols Taipei: Xinwenfeng, 1974, and Taipei: Longji tushu gongsi 龍記圖書公司, 1976. Huang Moxi refers to this work in his preface to the Putong baike xin dacidian, which came out in the same publishing house and the same year. According to this preface, the editor is Shen Cuifen 沈粹芬. Shen is also listed as th editor of other works coming out in this publishing house, such as the Qing wenhui 清文匯, 1910, repr. In 3 vols. Beijing: Beijing chubanshe, 1996, and the Guochao wenhui 國朝文匯, 1909, which he compiled together with Huang Moxi (Huang Ren) and which has been included into the Xuxiu siku quanshu. However, Shen is not explicitly mentioned as the compiler or editor in the book itself.
In the header of the Fanli 凡例 the title of the work is given with a subtitle, 文科大詞典. 修詞學之部. The ci 詞 here is a new term used to translate ‘concept.’ The Fanli explicitly states that “the new concepts will not be included” (p.7). Obviously there was a division of labor with Huang Ren’s Putong baike xin dacidian 普通百科新大辭典, which came out in the same year from the same publisher. The work shares some organizational features with Huang Ren’s work. Words are grouped according to the stroke number of the first character, but in addition, each word is marked as belonging to one of five word classes, 名 (by far the most frequent), 動,靜, (both with roughly equal frequency, but far below the first), 狀 (with modest frequency), and 歎 (rare). And each concept is assigned to one of 40 classes such as 人事類, 動物類, 儀容類, 體制類, 農業類 or 服飾類.
