Are 'All Men are brothers' and 'Analects of Confucius' the only two examples of Chinese literature published by LEC/Heritage.

The Limited Editions Club under Sid Shiff did Cathay, Poems After Li Po in Ezra Pound's "translations"--since Pound didn't know Chinese one doesn't know how faithful they are, but are acknowledged by experts to be masterpieces in their own right.

Other than this pricy volume, I know of no other Chinese literature examples than the ones you mentioned (sadly, they never did Monkey).

>2 Django6924:: There is a good edition of Monkey published by the Folio Society, very well translated by Arthur Waley, but of course this is not the complete translation of the book 'Journey to the West'. Yes, it would have been nice if LEC had published the full book (just like 'All Men are Brothers'). There would be a lot of scope for some high quality illustrations.

Thanks for the Li Po information.
