ADMIN> Creating new posts on H-Buddhism

Dear H-Buddhism Subscribers:

In terms of using the new system, it is very important that when you have a new post to send to the list, that you go to the web site and start by creating a new post. You should *not* create a new post by replying to an incoming post. If you do that, it will be filed as part of a discussion under the post you have replied to, even though it has nothing to do with that post.

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.
