Jou pu tuan : the prayer mat of flesh by Yu Li( Book )

14 editions published between 1963 and 1985 in 4 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the three hundred years since its initial publication, Li Yu's The Carnal Prayer Mat has been widely read in China, where it is recognized as a benchmark of erotic literature and currently enjoys the distinction of being a banned-in-Beijing classic. The story centers on Scholar Vesperus, a handsome orphan and student of Zen. Before taking his monastic vows, Vesperus embarks on a career of licentiousness. His adventures as hero of the boudoir, a champion of sex take both comic and calamitous turns, until eventually he attains enlightenment on the carnal prayer mat

"Diesen Roman schrieb vor Jahrhunderten ein chinesischer Dichter. Sein Name ist vergessen. Sein Werk ist weltberühmt. Die zarten Farben der Poesie und inniger Liebe, die Schnörkel der Riten und Zeremonien, die kräftig-grellen Töne und Kontraste bewegten, intrigenreichen Geschehens- all das wusste der Schreibpinsel des Dichters mit der Geschichte vom Mandarien Meh und dessen Sohn zu bewahren, ursprünglich und von lebendiger Unmittelbarkeit bis in unsere Tage."

All men are brothers = Shui hu zhuan by Nai'an Shi( Book )

15 editions published between 1934 and 2008 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation of a Chinese classic (14th Century) is the epic tale of a band of patriots in China during the latter part of Sung Dynasty and is considered by most to be one to the three or four greatest novels in Chinese literature. Shui hun chuan (water margin chronicles) is the adventure of a band of 108 outlaws (105 men and 3 women) struggling to help the Emperor rid himself of the despotic prime minister. Like Robin Hood, the bandit kings refer to themselves as the "gallant fraternity." They come out to harass the authorities and to attempt to solicit followers to overthrow a corrupt government in the name of the Emperor. Chocked full of ghosts, innkeepers who make hamburgers of their guests, giants of superhuman strength, beautiful women in distress, wily intellectuals and crafty merchants, this is a timeless tale of love and adventure

16 editions published between 1931 and 1984 in German and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dream of the red chamber by Xueqin Cao( Book )

11 editions published between 1932 and 2007 in German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dream of the Red Chamber is more than a novel of manners, but in its anatomizing of one extensive family it is at least that. The House of Chia is a world in itself, complex and fascinating. Its population consists of those who serve and those who are served, the maids no less than the mistresses, the messengers no less than the Matriarch. There are hundreds of people together, and each of them manages to somehow be an individual at the same time that he (or she, for women dominate the plot) maintains relations with the whole society of which he is a part. ... Pau-Yu and Black Jade are figures of high comedy whose affectations have an infinite charm; yet before the narrative is finished they are a tragic hero and heroine too." (Mark Van Doren, preface, page vi)
