Der Neue Welt-Bott was a Jesuit missionary periodical written in German and based on the Lettres édifiantes et curieuses. Beginning with translations of French letters, it later became the first serialized publication of German language Jesuit reports from missions worldwide, although today it is best known for its China-related content. Published between 1726-1758 (1761 if missing numbers are included) in 4,500 pages including images, maps, cultural commentary.

For a full description with detailed index of contents, authors, and correspondence, see: Claudia von Collani, "Der Neue Welt-Bott: a preliminary survey" in Sino-Western Cultural Relations Journal XXV (2003) pp. 16-43.
