Beijing: Mangwen chubanshe, 1981. Paperback. Unpaginated, large-format volume on thick, light brown paper, 9x12 inches, covers edgeworn, contents entirely in Chinese Braille. Third edition of the 1960 original.

One project undertaken after the Communist revolution in China was the search for useful employment for the blind. As massage had been one of the traditional occupations of those few blind people who had been able to work in pre-revolutionary China, the government established schools for regularizing their training. This is a textbook for these schools, printed in raised dots using a system analogous to that adopted for Braille in western languages (it is based on Pinyin Romanization, with tones indicated for disambiguation).
