FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY,
THE STEADY PROTECTOR OF BRITISH INTERESTS IN CHINA,
This Rebised work,
AFTER TWENTY-ONE YEARS' TRIAL,
BY THE AUTHOR.
The exhaustion of several previous Editions, and the sort of Chinomanie created by the late discussions in Parliament, with the events in which those discussions originated, as well as those to which they tended, called for a new and enlarged impression of this work, which has been augmented by an additional Chapter (the fifth), bringing the history of British transactions down to the present time.
