526 China Review International: Vol. 4, No. 2, Fall 1997 Ralph D. Sawyer and Mei-chün Lee Sawyer, translators and commentators. Ling Ch'i Ching: A Classic Chinese Oracle. Shambhala Dragon Editions. Boston and London: Shambhala, 1995. xvii, 294 pp. Paperback $16.00, isbn 1-57062-083-0. This text is the third major ancient Chinese divination system to be made available in a form suitable for consultation by readers of English. First came Cary F. Baynes' translation of Richard Wilhelm's German version of the Confucian classic Yijing (Book of changes), which has proved its mettle to me and thousands of other inquiring Western minds since its publication nearly a half-century ago. Although other translations of die Yijinghave preceded and followed Wilhelm/ Baynes, few besides Thomas Cleary's Taoist and Buddhist versions proved suitable for consultation. In 1994 came The Elemental Changes, a consultant's version, by Michael Nylan, of die scholarly edition of the Taixuanjing (The canon of supreme mystery), an oracle composed by the court poet Yang Xiung toward the end of the Former Han period, just before the first millennium c.e. Now comes this third system, the Lingqijing (Spiritual, or empowered, chess classic), which is almost unknown in the West. An anonymous author
