Brewitt-Taylor was the first to fully translate a traditional Chinese novel into English. His life, in teaching and the Chinese Imperial Customs, makes a fascinating study of an Englishman in Qing and early Republican China. His personal story is marked by sadness, bereavement and his wife's madness.
