592 LIST OF BOOKS.

Many of the works printed at Malacca, Penang, and
Singapore, have not been regularly reported, or the
record of the work done is not to be found in this
country ; so that it is difficult to ascertain at this dis-
tance the number of pages or the quantity printed of
several publications specified in the foregoing lists :
still, as far as the account can be made up, it appears
that there have been printed, from the year 1810 to the
year 1836,

At Malacca and Canton .... 450,469 books and tracts.

At Batavia 191,394 „

At Penang 43,900 „

At Singapore 66,000 „

751,763

Including 2,075 complete Chinese Bibles, 9,970 New
Testaments, and 31,000 separate portions of Scripture ;
with 2,000 Malay Testaments, and 2,000 separate
Gospels in the same language. If the number of
pages of each work be reckoned with the amount
printed off, it will be seen that the brethren in the
Ultra-Ganges missions have issued from their presses
in those regions upwards of eight million pages of
religious publications in the Chinese and Malayan
languages.
