The Best Tales of Hoffmann: E. T. A. Hoffmann, translated by E. F. Bleiler seems to be the 'perfect book with perfect translation': 6 of 6 '5-star' reviews; 36 of 36, 23 of 23 and 18 of 18 people found the reviews helpful. After reading the first story - The Golden Flower Pot, I agree!

Beautiful book - travelogue, haiku, zen, translation, typeset, kiri-e, calligraphy, print, paper, binding,... also 'The Narrow Road to the Deep North' illus. Buson, trans. Nobuyuki Yuasa (Penguin classics), 'Busho's Ghost' by Sam Hamill.

Being-Time, Life and How to Live.

Shobogenzo, trans. Norman Waddell

ought to sit and face the wall more often... like Dogen, or more correctly Bodhidharma.
