Originally published in London, 1910. A collection of eleven important early Chinese Folk Lore Tales. The book is rich in the myth and legend of early China. Contents Include The Widow Ho, Kwang-Jui and the God of the River, The Beautiful daughter of Liu-Kung, The Fairy Bonze, The Mysterious Buddhist Robe, The Vengeance of the Goddess, The Wonderful Man, The God of the City, The Tragedy of the Yin Family, Sam-Chung and the Water Demon, The Reward of a benevolent life. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
