For those interesting in the blossoming of Chinese missions that included Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, David Hill and the Methodists, and the other nearly apostolic endeavors of the time, this volume is an invaluable and quite large resource; almost unobtainable in the original edition. 

It contains an original large format photograph of the attendees, a silhouetted reproduction of the photograph with numerical identification, and a quantity of large fold out maps. 

Exceptionally scarce. Works by the Shanghai Presbyterian Mission Press now fetching thousands of dollars of each in many cases. No other copies offered recently, so conservatively priced since we lack a referent. 

Records of the General Conference of the Protestant Missionaries of China, Held at Shanghai, May 10-24, 1877. Shanghai. Presbyterian Mission Press. 1878. 492pp.

Topics addressed at the conference included: The Holy Spirit in Connection with the Work; Entire Consecration and Missionary Success; Buddhism and Taoism in their Popular Aspects; Preaching to the Heathen - Matter and Manner; Feet Binding; Importance of a Vernacular Christian Literature; Standards of Admission to Full Church Membership; The Best Means of Elevating the Moral and Spiritual Tone of the Native Church; Self-Support of the Native Church; The Native Pastorate; Principles of Translation into Chinese; The Treaty Rights of Native Christians and the Duty of Missionaries in  Regard to their Vindication; Questionable Practices Connected with Marriage and Funerals; The Use of Opium and its Bearing on the Spread of Christianity; How Shall the Native Church be Stimulated to More Aggressive Christian Work; The Training of a Native Agency, etc.
