The first Chinese-Portuguese dictionary displayed at an ancient book exhibition in Macao.
An exhibition on ancient books was kicked off on Friday at the Central Library in Macao to celebrate China's second Cultural Heritage Day, which falls on June 9.
The exhibition from June 8 to August 8 is expected to offer visitors a review on the east-west cultural exchanges on the island city.
Also on display are historical records seen in books such as "A abelha da China", the first weekly newspaper in Portuguese published in China, the first Chinese-Portuguese dictionary, and the works of Zheng Guanying, a thinker who lived in the late period of the Qing dynasty.
The exhibition is then expected to tour south China's Guangdong province and Hong Kong.
