This supplementary collection of Chinese books has been gathered
together since the year 1898.

In 1908, when a large number of valuable works came into the
market, a fund was raised by private subscription, the subscribers
being: —

The Master of Emmanuel

The Provost of King's

Professor Sir Clifford Allbutt, K.C.B.

Professoi* A. A. Bevan

Professor E. G. Browne

J. Y. Buchanan, Esq., F.R.S.

Professor F. C. Burkitt

F. J. Cobbold, Esq., M.P.

N. C. Cohen, Esq.

S. Gaselee, Esq.

Professor H. A. Giles

C. Hanbury, Esq.

Professor Liveing

Professor Macalister

J. F. P. Rawlinson, Esq., K.C., M.P.

A. E. Shipley, Esq., F.R,S.

Professor W. W. Skeat

Professor V. H. Stanton

University Library

Lady Wade



With this fund, (i) a great many gaps in the Chinese Library
were filled up, and (2) some rare works were acquired.

Under the first of these heads may be mentioned Y la, which is
an anthology, in 401 volumes, of the prose masterpieces produced
under the T'ang dynasty (A.D. 618 — 906), and is a companion to
D 246, already on the shelves, a similar anthology of the poetical
masterpieces of the same period.

Under the second head will be found D 75a, which contains, in
24 volumes, the complete writings of the famous poet, Tu Fu (A.D.
712 — 770). Hitherto, the oldest printed book in the University Library
has been C 114, an illustrated account of all foreign nations known
to the Chinese, which dates back to the last quarter of the 14'h century.
The work here under notice dates back to the year A.D. 1204.

Some important donations have been made, of which two call for
particular mention.

A large number of works, marked in this Catalogue with a dagger,
were presented by Dr F. Sanger, of St John's College ; and several
of these are of peculiar interest as specially representing the literary
activity of the province of Fuhkien, in which Dr Sanger happened
to be stationed.

Those works which are marked with an asterisk were presented
by Mr L. C. Taylor, of Clare College. The large majority of these
form new acquisitions, the remainder being other editions of works
already secured.

Over one thousand three hundred volumes have thus been added
to the Library.

books, many of those preserved to-day are not genuine. Now I am
convinced that these volumes of Lieh Tzu are ancient and valuable.
