An anonymous seventeenth-century Chinese novel almost certainly written closely after the fall of the Ming dynasty to the Manchus. This novel was out of print for many years (and even now is difficult to come by), perhaps because it is very long, (this volume comprises the first twenty chapters, there are 100 in all) and has an unusually large lexicon, which would have made printing expensive in pre modern times. (translator's note).The Edwin Meller Press publishes Academic and Scholarly books worldwide.
