I use 3 sources:
1: Oracle of the Moon (online)
2: Hilary Barret (book)
3: Bradford Hatcher (book, get much clarity from the quatations section)
I have Wilhelm, Barret, Hatcher, Taoist I Ying, Buddhist Iching and Ritsema and Karcher

In my search for the right one, which I guess is in chinese (?), I've been assembling 30, not all of them translations - some of them material concerning the I.

How Many Books On The I Ching Do You Own? 20
I'm curious why you're asking this question? It seems odd to me, like asking how big our hard drives are, or how many bedrooms I have in my home. I don't see any practical use for the question or how it has to do with I Ching news? D.

PS - so far, I think Bradford is 'winning.'

Take care of it, it's nearly impossible to get. I speak out of experience, I have even sended a letter to an address in Taiwan found in an edition lended on the library, but without response. It's some years ago now.

Mine is just a copy :) Somewhere around 1989 I worked at a copy shop. I borrowed the book from a library here in The Netherlands and copied it.

I have a pdf of the book. PM me if you want it.

PM ??????

My email is: www@svenrus.dk

Do You got a P.O.BOX adress ? Once I bought a chinese book in a second-hand-shop, thinking that it was about ancient chinese characteres. I don't read, nor speak chinese so maybe it was stupid but the price was around 2 U.S. dollars so it wasn't the big loss. I can send it to your P.O.BOX if You want......

Even more than Chris Gait, Harmen, and myself might be Lorraine Patsco, who was collecting everything in their published Annotated Bibliography in hard copy, and last I heard she was about to inherit Ed Hacker's collection as well.
Unfortunately, nobody I've talked to has heard from her since 2009, around the time her mom passed away, and the URL of what used to be a great resource site has finally expired. No posting on her Fb page either. Anyone know if she's left this world, or just Yixue?

Revised figure after an inventory. I have 516 books in the Yi Jing collection, with at least 400 of those containing copies of the Yi. The bulk of the collection is in English and Chinese, with some Russian and French material and a few books in Dutch and German.
