LT-er Wonderworks (who BTW has cataloged no books yet) posted a question on our profile page on a topic we know little about:

i am trying to find books (preferably translated by taoists) of books like: pao-p'u tzu (Ko Hung), Tsan-tung-chi (Wei Po-yang), Wu-chen p'ien (Chang Po-tuan), and Pai Yu-ch'an Ch'uan-chi (Pai Yu-ch'an), but its not exactly easy, any advice?

Any ideas?

The annotated bibliography listed below attempts to provide a comprehensive inventory of
Daoist texts translated to date in Western languages.
Doesn't look all that good for the OP's specific wants, though.

The link above does provide some bibliographic information about the texts, except for the last one of ``Pai Yu-ch'an". It seems that ``Pai Yu-ch'an Ch'uan-chi" is the biography of Pai Yu-ch'an. There is one by 彭耜, which can be found in 歷世真仙道體通鑒 Lishi zhenxian tidao tondjian, Book 49. I'm not sure if it has ever been translated.

I thought maybe 宋白真人玉蟾全集, but only because that's the source for Pai Yu-ch'an material in Way and Byway, which I happen to have. (Though he uses 蟬.) Religion and Society in T'ang and Sung China has a footnote:
translation adapted from a draft by Neil Bolick titled, “An Examination of Patterns of Imagery, Metaphor, and Allusion in Pai Yu-ch'an's Poetry,” (Indiana University seminar), 1985.
I have no idea how one might find that and searching for bits of text from the poems to which the footnote is attached, in case it's been published subsequently, comes up empty.

My bad, it should be 全集.
