This is a handsome volume of Chinese Lyrics translated by Ms Joerissen from the French, and published by The Elf Publishers, New York, in 1929. It is beautifully done both in translation and in binding, and is dedicated "To the Memory of Tsao-Chang-Ling, who has gone to sleep in the Garden of the Nine Springs after having confided to me the care of presenting to French readers these illustrious Poems chosen and translated by him." There are about 180 poems contained herein. You will love this book, and though it would make a most generous gift, you may find yourself very reluctant to part with it. Bookseller Inventory #
