Aid to the Recording of Chinese Names
Russell Jones & Tham Kok Thye
A fascinating document where one of the authors, Russell Jones, has had several books published on Chinese names. The purpose was to devise a system for recording Chinese names, probably mainly for government servants, when the compiler had next to no knowledge of the Chinese language or how Chinese names are composed. 191 pages.Weight 2kg Post free within Malaysia but will incur additional postage charges when posted elsewhere.
Condition: Very Good Paperback. The book appears to be a Photostat of the original which was typed, so the book may have been distributed in this form. The covers have a few damp stains and tears from use. The binding is good the text is clear and there is very mild tanning throughout.
