BOOK SERIES> Bibliothèque chinoise

Dear Colleagues,

Sinologically-inclined members of this list may already be familiar with the excellent new series of translations from the French publishing house Les Belles Lettres called "Bibliothèque chinoise." The selected works--classics of the Chinese tradition, broadly defined--are presented in a bilingual format with the Chinese on one page and the French facing it. There are scholarly intoductions, extensive footnotes, indices etc. The quality is exceptionally high, but the editions are available in very affordable (and handsome-looking) paperback editions. I highly recommend this series.
