Probably a Taiwanese pirated edition, circa 1930s, according t o David Gaines, bookseller. “The author of “Strange Stories” was a native of Tzu-ch'uan, in the province of Shan-tung. His family name was P'u; his particular name was Sung-ling; and the designation or literary epithet by which, in accordance with Chinese usage, he was commonly known among his friends, was Liu-hsien, or “alast of the Immortals.” A further fancy name, givento him probably by some enthusiastic admirer, was Liu-ch'uan, or “Willow S pring;” but he is now familiarly spoken of simply as P'u Sung-ling.” - fromthe introduction.
