Chinese Literature
Luzi 陸子 "Master Lu"

The Luzi 陸子 "Master Lu" is a Daoist treatise compiled by the Jin period 晉 (265-420) writer Lu Yun 陸雲. Lu Yun was a famous literate of his time. His collected writings are the Lu Yun ji 陸雲集. Has also written a book called Xinshu 新書, that might be identical to the Luzi. This book is long since lost and is only preserved in fragments collected by the Qing period 清 (1644-1911) scholar Ma Guohan 馬國翰 (Yuhan shanfang jiyi shu 玉函山房輯佚書) extracted from encyclopedias like Chuxueji 初學記 or Taiping yulan 太平御覽. The collection of fragments also includes some quotations from Lu Yun's biography in the official dynastic history Jinshu 晉書, which might not be directly wrings of Lu Yu himself but come from a discussion with Wang Bi 王弼.
