Scanned, proofed and formatted by John Bruno Hare at sacred-texts.com, August 2008. This text is in the public domain in the US because it was originally published prior to 1923. The Shanghai edition contains all of the poetry verbatim from the 1876 edition, which has much additional apparatus not included here. The Chinese text is also omitted in this etext for technical reasons.
