This Indices is prepared for the use of readers of the Abridged Edition under the title of 'Cracking the Chinese Puzzles'. The contents of this book was originally a part of Volume 5 of the original work. As the Abridged Edition was already too voluminous consisting of 812 pages, this part was to be omitted.
Now that the author has prepared a translation - in fact, a rewriting in Chinese of the Abridged Edition, he thinks this Indices should be usable to the readers of both English and Chinese edition. However, it includes as well characters not included in the Abridged Edition which purports to teach only 3,6.50 characters obtained by him through a survey of 1.4 million characters in modern use excluding particularly those created in history for naming remote small rivers, mountains, towns and for superstitious reasons, personal names which have no else other meaning.
The author believes that simplifying Chinese Characters must also include making such characters of naming remote rivers, etc. obsolete and substitute them with ones of similar pronunciation which the authorities are gradually introducing. These unnecessary complications will be objected by any future learners, as they are all proper names and not known to people outside the region.
