Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the compilation and early printing history of three thirteenth-century works on Song Dynasty history written in the 'outline and details' format. An investigation of surviving exemplars, along with entries in traditional rare book catalogs, reveals that late Song printers formed these three books, which had originally been composed as independent works, into a 'trilogy' that presented, in a unified printed format, a history of the Song from 960 through 1224. The chapter represents the first attempt to print a continuous history of the still reigning Song Dynasty and reveals much about the intersection of history, printing, and politics in the thirteenth century.
