"A pronouncing and descriptive dictionary of Chinese characters."
" ... The largest of all the character dictionaries, the Kangxi zidian 康熙字典 (1716) contains a total of 47,035 characters, out of which as many as 20,000 (40%) are graphic variants. There are also many dead characters or characters that were used rarely or only once." -- Cf. Wilkinson, Chinese history, a manual, p.64.
