The Plum Flower Manual, Original
梅花谱  Vol. 1, Games 1&2

This is volume 1 of The Plum Flower Manual by Wang, or the original Plum Flower Manual. 
This is another masterpiece, who has shaped the thinking of openings for centuries to come.
Volume 1 is dedicated to black using the Screen Horse Defence against Red's Central cannon.
In games 1 and 2, Red uses the riverbank cannon and quickly aims at black's left (red's right) elephant. Like the Secret in the Tangerine, the kills are spectacular.
Although by contemporary standards, the moves are questionable for red (and especially stressed so in the Anti-Plum Flower Manual), it is nevertheless a must read.
