Henry, B. F. (1884). Taoist Texts, Ethical Political and Speculative. Retrieved from

Description: This is a small selection of varied texts from the Taoist Canon, including yet another translation of the Tao Te Ching. As intimated in the subtitle, some of the books relate to ethics, some to politics, and some to internal alchemy. Selections marked with an * are not translated in Legge's Texts of Taoism, and are thus believed to be new to the internet here. The English translations of the titles shown below are given in the text, but only on the headers of the pages. There are in the original moderately extensive notes in Chinese, but the characters have all been replaced with ### in this edition in the interest of saving bandwidth, resulting in some notes which are now absurdly meaningless.
