The English – Hakka Dictionary 英客字典 (Yin1 Hak5 Su4 Den3) of 1958 was compile by catholic missionaries, Marsecano (萬思謙) Guerrano (吉愛慈), and three Chinese church members 梁木森, 陳俊茂, 邱金漳. The approximately 14x19x3cm book consisted of a title page, a two page introduction, 10 pages of tables and explanation of Hakka sounds and tones, the 620 paged dictionary, a seven page appendex on family relations, time words, cities in Taiwan and weights and measures. Two editions were created: a softcover that came with a brown plastic sleeve with the title imprinted into it; and a hardcover with a gold embossed title on the spine and mottled red cover. It was published by 光啟出版社 priced US$6.00 at the time.

The National Taichung University of Science and Technology has scanned the book and has made it available online. To navigate the pages, I have created an index below of all the scans.

It is important to note that the site is missing 6 page scans from the book. These are 210, 211, 552, 553, 560 and 561.
