This thesis consists of 3 parts. - Part A, B & C -. Both the London Missionary Society (LMS) and the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) came to Malacca and Singapore in 1815 and 1834 respectively to establish Chinese printing presses. They produced religious pamphlets, as well as secular material (such as universal geography and world history, among others) written in Chinese by Protestant missionaries and their assistants. This thesis is a brief literature survey of works on LMS and ABCFM.
