Classical Works on Taiji Theory

I have been trying to find classical works on taiji theory in Chinese, if anyone has a good website to share, please leave a comment! Thanks!

Background: Classical Chinese is slightly different from modern Chinese, written in less words (characters) which can have a wider scope of meaning compared to modern Chinese. While the great taiji masters of old are no longer around, I think they have left behind important lessons in their works on the theory behind taijiquan, and it is up to us to try and decipher what we can from the classical Chinese works.

You may want to approach the following.

"The Chen's and Yang's Style Tai-Chi Martial Art Digital Archive Project
(Graduate Institute of Sports Science, National College of Physical Education and Sports".

The main url is http://www.iis.sinica.edu.tw/ICDAT06/demo/demo8.html

Used to be able to access the digitised documents, not any more.
