Book cover
The first edition was published in 1834 by the author, John R. Morrison. The second and third editions, published in 1844 and 1848 with Morrison's name appearing on the t.-p., were largely rewritten by Samuel Wells Williams. The revisions were so extensive that with the fourth edition Morrison's name was dropped and William's name appears on the t.-p. as author. cf. Prefaces to the 2d and 4th editions and British museum.
