117 editions published between 1901 and 2014 in English and held by 1,815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of Chinese Literature is without doubt the best basic introduction to Chinese literature, which has given to the world exquisite poetry and such classics as Monkey, The Analects of Confucius, the works of Chuang Tzu, and other writings over a time span of 2,500 or more years. This book is the first general history of Chinese literature to be found in any language, including Chinese, and to this day has no rival. Rich in critical wisdom, it covers all periods in Chinese history from the feudal times before the Christian era to the Ch'ing (Manchu) dynasty, which ended in 1912. Professor

Herbert Allen Giles (1845-1935) spent several years as a diplomat in China and in 1897 was appointed Cambridge University's second professor of Chinese. His published works cover Chinese language and literature, history and philosophy. This series of lectures, published as "China and the Chinese", was given at Columbia University in 1902, to mark the establishment of a Chinese professorship there. The lectures were not intended for the specialist, more to urge a wider and more systematic study of China and its culture, and to encourage new students into the field.
