The Chinese Classics

by James Legge

Sadly, this book uses Wade-Giles to translate names and books into English. It would have been easier to understand and reference other works if it was written with Pinyin.

Hung Lou Meng - book 1

by Cao Xueqin

For the non-Chinese reader, the title of this book translates to "A Dream of Red Mansions"/"A Dream of Red Chamber" and is also known as "The Story of the Stone".

This book is one of the "big four" of Chinese books. (The others are "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" , "Water Margin" and the last is "Journey to the West" )
