Here is a link to a very interesting blog (in Chinese) and a couple, perhaps rare photos.

Is there a way to post photos on this discussion board?

Hi!
Gu Rou Chen, Could tell me (if you know) who are those masters that appear in the picture? I just can recognize to Yang Chengfu and I would like to know who are they.
Thanks!
César

A nice piece of Calligraphy by Li Jinglin, master of the double-edged sword:

("Cloud peak, naked blade")

Here is a nice portrait of Yang Chengfu from yetaiji.com (note Yang Chengfu's calligraphy and signature on the card):

Jerry,

Small correction:

from right in back row:

Shen Erqiao, Huang Yuanxiu, Chu Guiting

(you had Zhu Guiting)

It was actually some material on him (Chu3) that I was recently given by one of his students that I found to be quite interesting, including a complete set of photos of his form. I will try to post some of them once I get done travelling this month.

Gu Rou Chen, Öî a misprint, possibly µ—, or is this another pronunciation for the one withÑÔ×ÖÅÔ?

Greetings,

Yes, his name should be µ—. There's a short bio for Chu Guiting in the ¾«Ñ¡Ì«¼«È­´Çµä, p. 34.

Uh oh, looks like those pics don't show up unless you have registered for the yetaichi site. I'll try to come up with a way around that.

Jerry,

I sent some photos of Chu Guiting to jerry@yangfamily.com; don't know if you still use that address. I have more photos if you want to post them.

Here are the photos Jeff sent me. I have reduced the size a bit and compressed them. Click on the thumbnails for larger versions.

Greetings Jerry,

Re: A nice piece of Calligraphy by Li Jinglin, master of the double-edged sword:
("Cloud peak, naked blade")

This piece appeared in Chen Weiming’s sword book, and Barbara Davis reproduced it in her translation, Chen Weiming, _Taiji Sword and Other Writings-_ (North Atlantic Books, p. 3). It should read right-to-left (jian guang ling yun)—something like, “the glint of the sword rides among the clouds.” According to Liang Shiqiu, lingyun is a compound meaning to ‘ride the high clouds,’ and he adds, “usually said of a person’s ambition or aspiration.” I see in the Hanyu Da Cidian that the poet Du Fu evidently coined a term, “ling yun bi” (cloud-riding brush?), which may have inspired this usage. I suppose too that “jian guang” could be read “glory of the sword” here, given the overtone of aspiration, but it could be taken different ways.

I just happened to revisit this Li Jinglin thing, as I’ve been playing with the little endorsement texts in the front of Yang Chengfu’s book.

Take care,
Louis
