London: Colnaghi & Co., 1835. Uncolored lithograph, on a 14 x 10½ inch sheet. Minor foxing, primarily around the outer edges, else quite clean. Very good.
An uncolored lithograph of German missionary Karl Gutzlaff (1803-1851), after a painting by George Chinnery. Gutzlaff was the first German Lutheran missionary to China, and was one of the first Protestant missionaries to dress like the Chinese. Gutzlaff wrote several works on China and also worked on a Chinese translation of the Bible. This image, lithographed by R.J. Lane, shows him clothed in the garb of a Fujian sailor.
