Japanese Encyclopaedias: A Hidden Impact on Late Qing Chinese Encyclopaedias?

Part of the Transcultural Research – Heidelberg Studies on Asia and Europe in a Global Context book series (TRANSCULT)


In 1887–1889, Fu Yunlong 傅雲龍 (1840–1901), a Chinese travel envoy to Japan, compiled and published a masterful study called Japan, with Maps and Tables, Youli Riben tujing 遊歷日本圖經, in 30 juan 卷. In that work, Fu cites the 175-year-old Japanese compendium, Illustrated Japanese-Chinese Bilingual Encyclopaedia, Wa-Kan sansai zue 倭漢三才図会 (sometimes written 和漢三才図会) of Terajima Ryōan 寺島良安 (ca. 1662–1732), published in 1713. The inspiration for this Japanese work was the Ming dynasty Illustrated Book of the Three Realms [of Heaven, Earth, and Man], Sancai tuhui 三才圖會 by Wang Qi 王圻 (1530–1615), published first in 1609.
