9781333446741: The Sacred Books of China, Vol. 3: The Texts of Confucianism (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Sacred Books of China, Vol. 3: The Texts of Confucianism
The present translation is, as I said above, the first pub lished in any European language of the whole of the Li Ki; but another had existed in manuscript for several years, the work of Mr. Alexander Wylie, now unhappily, by loss of eye-sight and otherwise failing health, laid aside from his important Chinese labours. I was fortunate enough to obtain possession of this when I had got to the 3 5th Book in my own version, and, in carrying the sheets through the press, I have constantly made reference to it. It was written at an early period of Mr. Wylie's Chinese studies, and is not such as a Sinologist of his attainments and research would have produced later on. Still I have been glad to have it by me, though I may venture to say that, in construing the paragraphs and translating the Cha racters, I have not been indebted in a single instance to him or P. Callery. The first six Books, and portions of several others, had been written out, more than once, before I finally left China in 1873; but I began again at the beginning, early in 1883, in preparing the present version. I can hardly hope that, in translating so ex tensive and peculiar a work, descriptive of customs andxiv preface.
