1st edition, though titled Second Edition. This is a typescript of the eponymous lecture given by H. Lang (possibly then the editor of the Shanghai Evening Courier) at the invitation of the American Presbyterian Mission in Shanghai (founded 1844). The 59 pages are bound in black boards with a red spine and red corners. Called 'Second Edition' (though no 'first' edition is known), it was followed by a printed publication, with four tables, later the same year, but this earlier version may have been reproduced in a small quantity for those who attended the lecture. Shanghai at the time was an open and almost international city, with a large Foreign Settlement close by; Lang's lecture covers much of Shanghai's immediate preceding history, and touches on many of the characteristics of its colourful social life in the mid-19th century. A unique item.
