Originally published in 1887, this early work by American missionary Hampden Coit DuBose is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains a wealth of information on the religions of China. This fascinating work is thoroughly recommended for those interested in Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism and eastern mythology. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

As the first Demon Sovereign in the history of the demon beast world, he would go for the heavenly tribulation, and as long as he endured the ninth heavenly tribulation, he would ascend to the legendary Demon Ancestor. Unfortunately, standing on the flying platform, he had acted too arrogantly. His luck was poor when he encountered the talking Nine Layered Heavens, and he was chased for ninety-one days and eighty-one days before being chopped into an immortal demon essence. From then on, he was at odds with the Nine-Layered Heavens. He swore that he would find a suitable carrier and return to life. He would shatter this Nine-Layered Heavens and recover his lost face!

We know that the Bible creation stories had their origins in far older tales. These stories strongly match the Old Testament and originate from clay tablets discovered in ancient Sumeria and Babylonia. They are the oldest preserved stories the world has ever known, revealed in this interesting book and passed down for many centuries before being adopted by whoever wrote the Old Testament. It seems the Word of God may not have come in its entirety from God, but gods. It is important that the earliest sources of our belief systems be examined. That is the purpose of this book.

Few symbols saturate human civilization so broadly and thoroughly as those of the ubiquitous and enigmatic dragon. This compelling book examines, compares, and analyzes the appearance and symbolization of the Eastern and Western dragons and treats them as the crystallization of human cultures. It shows that Chinese dragons resemble one another but suggest different ideas in different contexts, while Western dragons have different appearances but often denote a single concept. As one of the most notable achievements of dragonology, this book offers astonishing new insights into dragons as zoological «fact», psychological archetypes, and ideological symbols.

It was her innocence that Tish brought into the most hostile enviroments that drove everyone crazy. She was like a ray of sunlight in the night, in a world of darkness, and also why the Emperpor wanted to posess Tish so desparately, when all she wanted was to be accepted as a normal girl.
