References To Text Editions

This provides references to published editions consulted in the study of a given TLS Text.

The provenance of texts entered early into TLS is sometimes unknown, and - correspondingly - the reliability of texts in TLS unfortunately varies a great deal, some of the texts, like that of the Liji and Huainanzi having been inputted by hand long before such texts were conveniently accessible on the Web. For careful critical digital editions of early texts, the reader should refer to the CHANT database organised by Professor Ho Che Wah in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In recent times TLS has been free to use CHANT versions of the pre-Buddhist texts, wherever desirable.
