Subject:Translation and identification
Posted By: JOSEPH Thu, Aug 26, 2021 IP: 2607:fb90:4f92:2970:

Trying to translate this plate & figure out how old it is.
Is it considered a charger?
Please if anyone can help.
Thank you.

Dear I.Nagy,
Thank you so much. I love learning. The translations you've shared have led to numerous hours of further study. Today I read of Master Zhu and his 53 Maxims.🙏👏

I wonder if 17 other plates containing the remaining Maxims were produced
