A review of Ta Tsing Leu Lee: being the Fundamental Laws, and a Selection from the Supplementary Statutes of the Penal Code of China...By Sir George Thomas Staunton, 1810. A significant review giving the contents of the work in detail, with observations on both Chinese law and the peculiarities of the Chinese language.

"This is an extraordinary book in every point of view. Whether considered as to the materials of which it is composed, or the numerous difficulties which must have occurred in putting them into an intelligible shape, it equally merits attention. It is also extraordinary as being the first book which has ever been translated immediately from the Chinese character into the English language."
