The Plum in the Golden Vase or, Chin P'ing Mei:
Volume One: The Gathering
Translated by David Tod Roy

Book Description

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is the first complete English translation of world literature and will immediately supersede all existing partial and abridged translations in that language. Even aside from the stunning achievement of the translation itself, the book represents a lifetime of meticulous scholarship on an enormous number of Sinological subjects. This work is the culmination of David Roy's entire scholarly career and a compendium of his vast learning in all phases of traditional Chinese civilization."--Andrew Plaks, Princeton University
