1922. The author's aim, after summarizing the sociology of the Chinese as a prerequisite to the understanding of their ideas and sentiments, and dealing as fully as possible, consistently with the limitations of space, with the philosophy of the subject, was to set forth in English dress those myths which may be regarded as the accredited representatives of Chinese mythology; those which live in the minds of the people and are referred to most frequently in their literature, not those which are merely diverting without being typical or instructive. In short, a true, not distorted image. Gorgeously illustrated.
