The Supplement to the Illustrated Record of Wu Commandery (Wujun tujing xuji), compiled in 1084 by Zhu Changwen (1039-1098), is one of only two extant Northern Song local gazetteers. An examination of biographical materials reveals that Zhu Changwen wrote his gazetteer in opposition to the New Policies of Wang Anshi (1021-1086); it was intended as a contribution toward a new empire-wide gazetteer that would be required after the abolition of Wang's administrative reorganizations. The detail of Zhu's Supplement anticipates the more comprehensive gazetteers of the late Northern and the Southern Song. Les Notes supplémentaires à la géographie de la commanderie Wu (Wujun tujing xuji), compilées par Zhu Changwen (1039-1098) en 1084, sont l'une des deux seules monographies locales qui nous soient parvenues des Song du Nord. Un examen des matériaux biographiques montre que Zhu Changwen l'avait écrite en adversaire des réformes de Wang Anshi (1021-1086) pour contribuer à une nouvelle monographie nationale devenue nécessaire du fait de l'abolition attendue des réorganisations administratives de Wang Anshi. Par leur contenu, les Notes supplémentaires anticipent les monographies locales plus complètes des derniers Song du Nord et des Song du Sud.
