Chapter Summary

Although Ho Ching-ming did not prepare an edition of his work before his death, he had evidently been assembling and preserving his writings since about the time of his chin-shih pass. A standard recension in 38 chüan has been in existence since the middle of the sixteenth century. It was, however, preceded by a number of 'pre-standard' compilations, and an account of the nature of these texts and of their relations to one another, taking into account its history, both external (people, places, times) and internal (editions, textual genealogy), is a necessary first step both to the study of Ho's life and to the reading of his works. This appendix is intended to provide an introduction to this material. The first 29 chüan of the 38 that comprise the Standard recension consist of fu and shih poetry and the remainder of prose.

Keywords: chüan; Ho Ching-ming; poetry
