The present is the complete Chronicle and Directory for 1868: "In addition to the usual lists it will be observed that one more, the utility of which is obvious, has been compiled this year. This is a list of over Five Hundred Chinese Hongs in Hongkong, all doing business with foreigners. The Hongs have been classified in accordance with their various specialities, and the leading native Houses, engaged in each kind of Trade, are thus presented at one view." It includes a calendar with memorable dates since the founding of Hong Kong, a street directory, and a list of foreign residents in all the treaty ports. The Appendix provides updated information on Custom tariffs as well as trade and port regulations. Very rare.
