THE TWENTY FOUR CASES OF FILIAL PIETY. N.p. [China], n.d. [circa 1920s?]. Octavo, color illustrations printed on silk, bound in wood with Chinese symbol on front cover. Later edition. Bound accordion style with text in English and Chinese on the right panels and a pair of color illustrations on silk on the left. THE TWENTY-FOUR FILIAL EXEMPLARS is a classic text of Confucian filial piety probably written by Guo Jujing during the Yuan dynasty (1260–1368). The text was extremely influential in the medieval Far East and was used to teach Confucian moral values. Wood just a bit scuffed, two folds split, else a very good copy. The illustrations are in fine condition. (#162752).
