The Chinese Recorder, a journal produced by the Protestant missionary community in China, enjoyed a run of seventy-two years, longer than any other English- language publication in that country. The complete set of the journal, along with its predecessor of one year, the Missionary Recorder, is available only in this expanded microfilm edition. The Chinese Recorder is regarded today as one of the most valuable sources for studying the missionary movement in China and its influence on Western relations with and perceptions of the Far East.
Published monthly by the Methodist Press, Foochow, 1867-1872, and Presbyterian Press, Shanghai, 1874-1941.
