Chapter Summary

This chapter briefs about the collection of essays written by the author himself Qian Zhongshu. This collection of essays brings together all of those contained in Four Old Essays and half of those in the This Also Collection. The first of these collections was published by Shanghai Classics Publishing House in September 1979, the latter by the Wide Lens Publishing House in Hong Kong in March 1984; the prefaces to both these collections are reprinted in an appendix to present collection. The compilation and publication of Four Old Essays was very much result of the enthusiasm and assistance of Mr Wei Tongxian. On this occasion too it has been his efforts that have ensured that these few half-Chinese but not Western, half-foreign and not ancient research essays are published by the Shanghai Classics Publishing House, a press that is famous for its contributions to the editing of classical Chinese books.

Keywords: classical Chinese books; Four Old Essays; Mr Wei Tongxian; Qian Zhongshu; Shanghai Classics Publishing House; This Also Collection; Wide Lens Publishing House
