A translation of a treatise by Zheng Manqing by Lee Fife

Greetings,
I have just come across a translation of, 程序第十一 Treatise 11: Distinct Sequence of the Journey, by Zheng Manqing and translated recently by Lee Fife. It is a very interesting treatise by Zheng Manqing and outlines a road map on one's progression in the practice of Taijiquan. It is the first time that I have come across the concept of the 3 ranks, Human, Earth and Heaven, and the 9 levels of attainment. It also provides an insight into the difficulties of translating the written texts of a Daoist and classical scholar such as Zheng Manqing. (For those who might be unaware, Zheng Manqing was a student of Yang Chengfu and is attributed as being the person who wrote the, "The Essence and Applications of Taijiquan"" by Yang Chengfu, based on Yang Chengfu's oral instructions).
Take care.

Are the other treatises available elsewhere?

[edit] Nevermind - found bound copies of them.
