Description de l’éditeur
Herbert Allen Giles (8 December 1845 – 13 February 1935) was
a British diplomat and sinologist, educated at Charterhouse. He modified a
Mandarin Chinese Romanization system earlier established by Thomas Wade,
resulting in the widely known Wade-Giles Chinese transliteration system. Among
his prolific works were translations of Confucius, Chuang Tzu, Lao Tzu, and the
first widely published Chinese-English dictionary.
