This was first printed in an abbreviated edition in 1975 and was reissued in 2008 with a major overhaul by Thomas Kirchner, who restored the detailed historical, linguistic, and doctrinal annotations that were central to Sasaki’s original plan. The task for the editorial team of Zen Dust was much more moderate in scope than for the Suzuki series, yet it was similar in terms of updating transliterations with the use of pinyin. This effort greatly affects the alphabetical listings of the Bibliogra- phy (pp. 299– 423), which remains one of the most valuable components of the book along with the incredibly detailed notes (pp. 131–295).
