The 1548 Ye Fengchun edition is one of the most important editions of Sanguo Yanyi, as it is the earliest dateable edition of the novel (the so-called "1522" edition was probably not published until well after its preface date of 1522). However, it is also one of the least well-known editions, as it survives only in a single, incomplete copy held at the Royal Library of the Escorial Monastery outside Madrid in Spain, and it has never been published before. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to examine this edition in person in 1992 when I was carrying out research on the editions of Sanguo Yanyi, and was able to get a microfilm of the book made for me.
