I'm learning the Traditional Characters for Mandarin but every book I look in shows the Stroke Order diagrams for writing them in Simplified Characters.

 

Is there a dictionary or textbook (NOT ONLINE) that shows the Traditional Characters with their stroke order to write them ?

 

Thanks !

Thanks !   I'm using "Chinese Radicals and Phonetics" by W. Simon, an old book from www.archive.org which has a great many of the characters shown with the stroke order listed horizontally next to the character, one stroke at a time. 

I also  have his Beginners Chinese English dictionary which, unfortunately, does not show strokes for the characters.

I've made a similar inquiry to yours, someone recommended to me "Written Standard Chinese" (vol. 1) by Parker Po-fei Huang and Hugh M. Stimson. The first volume contains 15 chapters, each introducing 20 new hanzi and their stroke order (both simplified and traditional). Each chapter also contains some grammar explanations, a vocab list and comprehensible texts for reading practice. I got my copy for 6 USD on Amazon (used). Even if it doesn't fit what you're looking for, regarding handwriting study, it'd still make for a good source of reading practice (I switched to simplified handwriting & now I'm using the book to familiarize myself with reading trad. forms).

 

Note: If you're specifically looking for something modern, this wouldn't fit the bill. It was published in the 80's

That would be me :). Glad you found it useful and that people can still find them.

I can't comment on the following as I haven't used them, but the series published by Cornelius Kubler, or by Cheng and Tsui also have character books/workbooks in traditional and simplified. I did look at one of Kubler's Intermediate spoken texts and while it looked fine it was printed on very heavy paper which I found inconvenient.

I am a big fan Stimson and Huang's books in general and would also be happy to answer any questions.

The book titled below may be just what you are looking for:

 

Far East 3000 Chinese Character Dictionary (Traditional Character Version)

遠東漢字三千字典(繁體版)

https://www.fareast.com.tw/9789865410438.html

 

It shows you the 3,000 most common traditional Chinese characters, their stroke orders, radicals, common words that contain those individual characters, their simplified equivalents (if there is one) and their pronunciation in Pinyin (primary) and Zhuyin (secondary).

 

The book can be ordered direct from the publishers website or book.com.tw (both ship internationally), or from Amazon.

I also came across "Chinese Reader for Beginners" by Shou Wing Chan, which I found on Internet Archive.

It's all traditional characters with the stroke order clearly shown in each lesson for the new characters introduced.

 

Last but not least, also on Internet Archive, I found a series of books Chinese Level 1, ll, and lll, apparently intended for

High School students in the early 1960's (!!). written by a San Francisco State College professor named Kai-Yu Hsu.

 

These books are quite good - l and ll use all romanization but lll has it as Chinese characters.  But NO stroke order in these,

I just wanted to mention them because they're in Traditional characters and well presented.  If ONLY there were accompanying Audio.
