Chinese nursery rhymes compiled in Peking. 1900

These pages are copies of a book of Chinese Nursery Rhymes, orally transmitted till compiled in Peking ( Beijing)  in 1900.  Those were terrible times for China,  the government in disarray,  the country invaded and parcelled by western countries, the people starving to death and in rebellion:  The famous Boxer Rebellion.  yet some enlightened souls had the foresight to preserve  bits of Chinese cultural heritage,  one of the most precious bits:  nursery rhymes orally transmitted through generations. By and by i shall illustrate them and tell you about them.  Nursery rhymes  represent the best of the human spirit,  I believe, and they belong to all of us.   the only one i remember  ” big head, big head” ( earlier blog), I found the rhymes again.  lucky me, now i have lots of nonsense to bother you with….. ciao.
