Opening a yearbook onto the past

(19 Mar 2019)  The “Shanghai Almanac for 1852, and Commercial Guide,” the city’s first yearbook, is set to be republished by the Shanghai Bookstore Publishing House in June. The yearbook, in English but due to have a Chinese translation, is the earliest compiled by foreigners on the Chinese mainland.

The original book will be displayed at the release ceremony of the reprinted version. A digital edition will also be available later on Shanghai Library’s online platform.
