From publisher: The Analects (or Sayings) of Confucius, as transmitted orally by his disciples, are believed not to have taken their present form until at least two generations after his death in 478 b.c. The first English translation, by James Legge, appeared in 1867. An abridged but far more accurate version was made by Lionel York, which published it in 1933 with a fresh introduction and notes by the translator.
