Hien-hien (Xianxian 獻縣): Imprimerie de la Mission Catholique, 1930. 418p., plus appended menu of "OEuvres profanes du P. Leon Wieger S.J. - en vente, le 1 avril 1930", illustrated with a few fullpage ancient cuts and contemporary schematics in vignette, first printing of this corrected / augmented issue. Texts entirely in facing Chinese and French. Hardbound in 9.5x6 inch quarter-cloth over black boards with spine lettering and ruling gilt. The paperstock is alkaline and has scarcely aged; aside from trivial edgewear to casing the sole flaw we see is an inch-long closed tear in the front free endsheet which does not extend to the margin.
Intended to aid Catholic missionaries in their understanding of the three largest local religious traditions of China.
