I.C. INTRODUCTIONS TO THE STUDY OF SUNG HISTORY

The three Japanese studies listed below are essential introductions to the primary sources, references tools, and major secondary works for the study of Sung history.

Sudō Yoshiyuki's 周藤吉之 essay on the Five Dynasties and Sung periods in:

(J) D9.S38
LoC: DS803 .S4 Japan
Sekai rekishi jiten
世界歷史辭典
(Encyclopedia of world history).
Vol. 23.
Tokyo: Heibonsha, 1955, pp. 184-204.

Chikusa Masaaki 竺沙雅章 wrote the chapter on sources for Song studies in the following volume:

J2412/1317
LoC: DS32.5 .A44 1983 Japan
Ajia rekishi kenkyū nyūmon, 1: Chūgoku
アジア歷史研究入門:中國
(Introduction to the study of Asian history, 1: China).
Kyoto: Dōhōsha, 1983, pp. 227-268.

An English translation of this essay, by Kenneth Chase, was published in the second edition of Research Tools for the Study of Sung History (Albany, NY: Journal of Sung-Yuan Studies, 1996).

Of particular value for social and economic history are Yanagida Setsuko's 柳田節子 and Ihara Hiroshi's 伊原弘 essays on the sources for Sung history and Chinese and Japanese studies, in

J2518/2445 Chūgokushi kenkyū nyūmon
中國史研究入門
(Introduction to the study of Chinese history).
Yamane Yukio 山根幸夫 ed.
Vol. I.
Tokyo: Yamakawa shuppansha, 1984, pp. 423-570.

The following guide is modeled on the work edited by Yamane. It includes Chinese translations of the relevant chapters in that work, and supplements critical reviews of scholarship produced in Taiwan and Hong Kong between roughly 1950 and 1985.

Ref(C) DS735.C543 1990x Chung-kuo-shih yen-chiu chih-nan 3: Sung-shih Liao Chin Yuan shih

Also note Hasegawa's account of postwar Japanese Sung studies:

(W) DS12.A45
LoC: DS12 .A45
"Trends in Postwar Japanese Studies on Sung History: A Bibliographic Introduction."
Hasegawa Yoshio.
Acta Asiatica 50 (1986): 95-120,

which cites the major reference works compiled by Japanese scholars and their studies of the examination and school system, bureaucratic system, and shih-ta-fu class.

Tonami Mamoru 礪波護 et al.
Nagoya: Nagoya daigaku shuppankai 名古屋大學出版會, 2006. pp. 127-157, 396-408.

This edited volume contains a chapter introducing the most important secondary scholarship and the main historical resources for research in Five Dynasties and Song China. The focus is on Japanese research, but the compilers also include references to modern Chinese editions and reference works. There is a bibliography in the back. Apart from the main chronological chapters, there are also three separate sections on catalogs, epigraphy, and geography.

 

The multi-volume series on Chu Hsi school Neo-Confucianism, the Shushigaku taikei includes a one-volume introduction to the sources for Chu Hsi studies:

J1237/2174

Shushigaku nyūmon
朱子學入門
(Introduction to Chu Hsi Confucianism).

Finally, note Fang Hao's discussion of 60 important primary sources:

9401/5621
LoC: Z3103 .S59 (Orien China)
"Yen-chiu Sung shih ts'an-k'ao shu-chi chü-yao"

宋史研究及其工具书
(Research in Song History and Reference Materials for It).
Wang Deyi 王德毅
Songshi yanjiu ji 33 (2003):469-495.

This article was originally published in 1989, but went through an update in 2003. The first part reviews major sources in Song history such as Song shi, Song huiyao, Sanchao Bei Meng huibian, Jianyan yilai xinian yao lu etc. and lists research tools prepared for each of them. The list is somewhat outdated.
The second part lists research tools in Song history of broader scope. Only print materials are discussed; new electronic resources are not included.

The following article lists the major general histories of the Song period written in China and Taiwan. Even though it focuses on Zhang Qifan’s Songdai shi, it also serves as a brief introduction to changing approaches in the writing of general Song histories:

  Lun duandai Song shi de zhushu--yi "Songdai shi" wei kaocha zhongxin

  Ershi shiji Song shi yanjiu lunzhu mulu
二十世纪宋史研究论著目录
(Bibliography of Twentieth-Century Scholarly Research on Song History)
Fang Jianxin 方建新, ed.
Beijing: Beijing tushuguan 北京图书馆出版社, 2006

This bibliography includes over 41,000 articles and books in Chinese published in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in the twentieth century up to and including 2000.
It is divided into two main parts, separating publications published between October 1949 and 2000 in Taiwan and Hong Kong from those published in mainland China (including those published in Taiwan and Hong Kong before October 1949). Each part is further subdivided by format into articles (appearing in both journals and edited volumes) and monographs (including twentieth-century editions of Song titles). The entries are grouped by topic and are entered chronologically under each (sub-)topic.
There is an author index arranged by pinyin transliteration.
This bibliography is an updated edition of earlier bibliographies by Fang Jianxin and the Hangzhou daxue guji yanjiusuo Song shi yanjiusuo 杭州大學古籍研究所、宋史研究所 which were published privately and did not enjoy wide circulation (Song shi yanjiu lunzhu mulu 宋史研究论著目录, 1982 and Song Liao Xiao Jin shi yanjiu lunzhu suoyin 宋辽夏金史研究论著索引, 1985). This revised edition includes many more titles (the 1982 edition included 2800 entries; the 1986 edition 13,000), and was cross-checked against Song Xi’s bibliographies covering research between 1905 and 2000.
Subdivision is uneven with some categories very broad and general like “law.”

III.A. MODERN COMPREHENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHIES

The most comprehensive, but not yet complete, bibliography of extant Song Dynasty titles is

Ref (C) Z3102 .L57 1995x Xiancun Song ren zhushu zonglu
現存宋人著述總錄
(Comprehensive Index of Extant Works by Song Persons)
Liu Lin 劉琳 and Shen Zhihong 沈治宏
Chengdu: Ba Shu shushe, 1995. 12, 530 p.

This union catalog includes titles preserved in major libraries in the PRC, Taiwan, Japan and the US. It also includes titles in the Daoist canon (Daozang), the Buddhist canon (Fozang) and Zhongguo congshu zonglu (Shanghai: Shanghai guji chubanshe, 1986). The list of individual literary collections by Shen Zhihong (III.B.1.a.) is included. For this part, and for the most part, only major editions are listed. New editions not included in Shen Zhihong's work are added.
This index contains 4855 titles; those with authors amount to 2370. In the compilers' estimate, Zhongguo congshu zonglu contains over 3000 Song titles, but leaves out over 1300 titles. It also does not list the wide variety of editions included here. The bibliography is organized by subject, according to the traditional sibu classification system supplemented with a category for congshu. Within each subdivision titles are organized more or less chronologically according to the dates of the author.
Titles that were re-issued in Song times are listed separately. Later editions appear under the main titles. Editions are listed as follows: 1) individual editions; 2) congshu; 3) post-1911 editions. Each entry lists holding institution (not for common titles), and the title for the series (when not noted in Zhongguo congshu zonglu). There is a table of the number of extant titles for each subject division in front. There is an author and title index.

The following lists the Sung texts found in the Chung‑kuo ts'ung‑shu tsung‑lu 中國叢書綜錄 (Catalogue of Chinese collectanea), 3 vols. (Shanghai, 1959-1962; rpt. Shang-hai ku-chi, 1982). Arranged by the romanized name of the author, it includes titles of works, bibliographic category, number of chüan, and editions. There is also an index by romanized book titles. This work lists 4500 titles, including variant titles, by 1664 authors.

Zhengzhou: Da xiang chubanshe, 2003-

This is an ongoing project managed by Shanghai shifan daxue guji yanjiusuo. About 500 items are planned. This makes this compilation much more complete than previous series such as Shanghai guji chubanshe's Song Yuan biji congshu 宋元筆記叢書, Song Yuan biji xiaoshuo da guan 宋元笔记小说大观 and Zhonghua shuju's Tang Song shiliao biji congkan 唐宋史料笔记丛刊. The latter, for example, includes over 40 items. Similar projects for the Tang and Five Dynasties are being undertaken by Hunan keji daxue (formerly Xiangtan shifan xueyuan).
The selection is based on the following criteria: 1) the title has to contain miscellaneous contents; 2) notes focused on one area (yulu, shihua, pu, guanzhen, mingchen yanxing lu, etc.) are not included; 3) anthologies of Song biji are not included (e.g., Lei yuan, Lei shuo, Songbai lei chao, Song ren yishi huibian). If the text only survives in part, emendations are made based on other texts (with references to the sources). The selection is limited to Song authors; Liao, Xia and Jin authors are not included. The titles are arranged chronologically, with some modifications for editorial purposes. Each item is preceeded by a brief introductory essay including a biography of the author (if not included in The Song Dynastic History), an abstract of the text and a history of its editions. Corrections and annotations to the text are only summarily noted. Annotations are conveniently placed in the top margin.

Zhu Shangshu 祝尚書
Beijing: Zhonghua shuju, 1999. 2 vols.
This bibliography covers 541 collected works of poetry and prose and individual collections of memorials out of an estimated 800 extant collections. The latter number includes collections of ci poems (ciji) and works collected in more general collections which are not discussed here. Ciji are not listed because they are covered in Rao Zongyi's 饒宗頤 Ciji kao: Tang, Wudai, Song, Jin, Yuan bian 詞集考 : 唐五代宋金元編 (Beijing: Zhonghua shuju, 1992). This work is intended to be a critical evaluation of the pros and cons of major editions. It therefore only includes original and major editions, not all. Editions published after the Qianlong reign, editions that have been demonstrated to be false attributions, and those reconstructed from very limited remnants are also excluded.
In the reference materials section of each entry, postfaces and prefaces as well as entries from catalogs are listed. The list in this edition is not comprehensive. The author aims to publish those bibliographical materials that were not included separately in a volume, titled, "Song ji xu ba huibian" (Song ren zongji xu lu (see below), preface, p. 5).
The main title entries are arranged chronologcially by the author's year of birth. Titles in the reference section are arranged chronologically by the year of publication.
There is a name and title index at the end of volume 2. The index is according to the four corners system, but there is a stroke order finding aid arranged by first character.

The Northern Song men included are: Xu Xuan 徐铉,Zhang Yong 张詠,Liu Kai 柳開, Wang Yucheng 王禹偁,Lin Bu 林逋,Fan Zhongyan 范仲淹, Mu Xiu 穆修,Yin Shu 尹洙,Mei Yaochen 梅堯臣, Shi Jie 石介, Ouyang Xiu 歐陽修,Su Qinshun 蘇舜欽,Li Gou 李覯,Su Xun 蘇洵,Wen Tong 文同,Sima Guang 司馬光,Wang Anshi 王安石, Shen Gou 沈遘,Shen Kua 沈括,Shen Liao 沈遼,Kong Wenzhong 孔文仲,Kong Wuzhong 孔武仲,Kong Pingzhong 孔平仲,Su Che 蘇轍,Huang Tingjian 黃庭堅,Qin Guan 秦觀,Chen Shidao 陳師道,Chao Buzhi 晁補之,Tang Geng 唐庚,Su Guo 蘇過. Zhou Zizhi 周紫芝 lived during the Northern-Song Southern-Song divide; Dai Fugu 戴復古 is the only Southern Song author included.
The introduction gives a brief overview of the different methods of compilation used in Song collected works. It also reviews the scanty scholarship on editions and re-editions of Song collected works.

For a listing of 350 Sung literary collections used in compiling the Sung-jen chuan-chi tzu-liao so-yin (Index to biographical materials on Sung figures) in roughly chronological order, see:

(Bibliographical Survey of Anthologies of Song Authors)
Zhu Shangshu 祝尚書
Beijing: Zhonghua shuju, 2004. 4, 6, 4, 651, 31 p.

This meticulously annotated bibliography includes all extant zongji that include work by Song authors and were compiled by Song authors. This implies that compilations by Song authors not including Song works are not included. Later compilations of Song authors are also not included. Complete as well as partial copies are listed. Anthologies are defined as anthologies of poetry, prose and combined prose-poetry. Those of memorials and decrees are considered prose anthologies in accordance with Song practice. The author has counted over 300 titles mentioned in catalogs, but only 80 survive and are discussed in this bibliography. The entries are arranged chronologically.
The main differences between this volume and Zhu Shangshu's work on bieji discussed above are: a) This title includes references to all prefaces and postfaces for each title (those cited in the main text are not listed again at the end). b) It includes two appendices: a list of zongji no longer extant and a list of libraries holding the titles described. Appendix one only includes those works for which descriptions are extant. Those for which only the title is known are not listed. Appendix two lists locations in China and abroad. The author refers to Zhongguo congshu zonglu for references to most congshu.
The index in the back includes title names, the names of compilers and annotators mentioned in the main text and in appendix one; the titles in appendix two; the names of authors of prefaces and postfaces.

III.C. SUNG-PERIOD BIBLIOGRAPHIES

1) The most comprehensive extant bibliography compiled in Yuan, although based on Sung-period historiography, is the "Treatise on Bibliography" (I-wen chih) in the Sung shih/Sung History. This, later supplements, and other Sung bibliographies of government holdings have been issued in a single volume, with a single author/title index, arranged according to the four-corner system. Note that bibliographies compiled in Sung included pre-Sung works in government libraries.

This title was compiled over a fifty-year period. Chen Lesu started working on it in earnest in 1941. His son, Chen Zhichao, edited it into its final form. It consists of three parts. In Part One, the main part, all entries in "The Bibliographical Survey" are read against entries on the same titles in other Song materials. This part allows user to check the accuracy of any title listed in the survey. Part Two is a descriptive list of types of errors in the survey, each illustrated with examples. Part Three consists of miscellaneous research notes.

This collection conveniently reproduces catalogs or sections of catalogs listing Song and Yuan editions. Around thirty titles, mostly dating from Qing times, are included. There is an index by stroke order and pinyin. Titles are listed under the original title only. This means that readers have to search a text under all variant titles to find all relevant editions.

 

The following is described by the Harvard-Yenching Library as "An index to descriptive notices of Chinese rare editions, appearing in 102 public and private library catalogs, collections of colophons and reading notes, and other bibliographical sources, which appeared from the Sung dynasty to the 1960s. The main body of the work comprises four-corner indices to the titles and authors of the rare books described. Stroke-count and pinyin indices to first characters are added for convenience. At the front of the volume is a list of the 102 sources (9 of them Japanese) with full bibliographical information. "

This is another outgrowth of the Quan Song wen project conducted by Sichuan daxue guji zhengli yanjiusuo. It is also part of a new large project, the Confucian Canon (Ru zang), this institution has embarked upon. This series contains 405 titles in over 10,000 juan. The vast majority of the volumes (through vol. 91) contain reproductions of individual literary collections of the work of Song authors (wenji); the remaining volumes (through vol. 107) are devoted to a selection of literary anthologies (zongji). The following selection criteria were used in identifying suitable editions: 1) Song and Yuan editions are generally included; 2) Ming and Qing editions are included if there are no earlier editions, if earlier editions are incomplete or if they have a different genealogy than extant earlier editions. 3) Post-Yuan editions are also included if they have been carefully collated or annotated. 4) Those reproduced in other reproduction series such as Sibu congkan (see VI.F) and Beijing tushuguan suocang zhenben congkan are excluded.
The last volume contains abstracts of all titles included. Each abstract traces the title's publication history, as well as its collection history (seals of ownership of particular copies as well as entries of editions in catalogs). It also gives a summary biography of the author and describes the contents. As in the Siku quanshu an individual title's abstract is also reproduced in its front pages.
The original copies have been scanned, enhanced, and fitted to a standard size. The original fonts and pagination have been preserved, but in the middle columns title, series title, and juan/page information has been electronically inserted.
Volume 108 contains indexes of titles and authors by stroke order. The table of contents, with abstracts, and the title and author indexes are also available at the website listed above.

This set contains reproductions of over 3000 inscriptions collected from around 100 compilations. Items were cut when reproduced elsewhere, when they did not contain the full text or when the text was deficient as to be incomprehensible. The compilers allege that only a small number has been left out this way. The layout of the original compilation is preserved, but page numbers were removed. There is a table of contents and an index of titles by stroke order. The usefulness of this collection is limited. It is in clear need of chronological, geographical, institutional or thematic indexes.

According to Zhao Chao's 赵超 general survey of archeological finds of biographical materials since 1949, around 400 items dating from the Song period have been identified. (Gudai muzhi tonglun 古代墓志通论.

So far the volumes for Henan (118 Song inscriptions), Shaanxi (13), Chongqing and environs (39), and Beijing (0) have been published. This series focuses on funerary inscriptions that have never been published before; those included in previous collections or circulating as rubbings are not included. Each volume includes a plate of each rubbing, a bibliographical description and the transcribed text. (The editorial policies require reproductions of the original steles, but those do not appear in the volumes published so far.) The volumes are either arranged by dynasty with place indexes at the end, or by place with a chronological index at the end. An index of all personal names mentioned in the inscriptions is also prescribed for all volumes according to the editorial policies.

The Sung-jen chuan-chi tzu-liao so-yin is arranged by stroke count. Volume 6 indexes the entire work according to tzu 字 names, hao 號 names, posthumous names, etc. It is particularly valuable for its references to the various "records," "prefaces," documents of appointment, and so on, in literary collections. However, neither letters nor poems, for example, are indexed.

Of great importance is the three-volume "Supplement" to the Sung-jen chuan-chi tzu-liao so-yin, prepared in conjunction with the Ch'üan Sung wen project:

(Supplement to the Index to biographical materials on Sung figures).
Li Kuo-ling 李國玲 comp.
Ch'eng-tu: Ssu-ch'uan ta-hsueh, 1994.
3 volumes.


This draws on material not included in the Taiwan index, including recently discovered tomb inscriptions and museum collections. There are more than 14,000 new name entries and supplements to over 6,000 established entries. The arrangement of the contents is similar to that in the Taiwan index. There is an index to secondary names.

Supplementary to the above two reference works are the following two sets of indexes:

Ref (C) DS751.5 .S66 1997x Zhongguo difangzhi Songdai renwu ziliao suoyin

Shen Zhihong 沈治宏 and Wang Ronggui 王蓉貴, comps.
Chengdu: Sichuan cishu chubanshe, 2002
4 vols.

The first name index is based on 302 local gazetteers in four gazetteer collections: 1) Song Yuan fangzhi congkan 宋元方志丛刊 (41 titles); 2) Tianyige cang Mingdai fangzhi xuankan 天一閣藏明代方志選刊 (107 titles); 3) Tianyige cang Mingdai fangzhi xuankan xubian 天一閣藏明代方志選刊續編 (109 titles); 4) Riben cang Zhongguo hanjian difangzhi congkan 日本藏中国罕见地方志丛刊 (45 titles)). The names were drawn from not only the biography sections but a wide variety of chapters. The entries are arranged according to the four-corner classification system. Appendices include pinyin and stroke order indexes, as well as an index of alternate names of the subjects included in the main body of the index.

The sequel covers Song personal names in 19 provincial gazetteers in three other gazetteer collections: 1) Zhongguo shengzhi huibian 中國省志彙編 (16 titles); 2) Zhongguo bianjiang congshu 中國邊疆叢書 (2 titles); 3) Changbai congshu chuji 長白叢書-初集 (1). This title's layout and editorial policies are identical to the first installment.

which gives, on a single line, name, tzu, native place, the title of the Sung-period biographical document (usually a funerary inscription), its location, and three generations in the patriline (this last is not found in the larger index). Note further that the Sung-jen chuan-chi tzu-liao so-yin indexes biographies in Sung and Yuan local gazetteers, as does the

but does not index Ming- and Ch'ing-period gazetteers, many of which include information from lost Sung-period works. The Ssu-ch'uan ta-hsueh index does do this.

Missing from the Sung-jen index also are references to funerary biographical inscriptions for monks. In addition to the supplements mentioned above reseachers at Sichuan University published an index to biographical information on Song monks.

  Song seng lu
宋僧录
(A Record of Song Monks)
Li Guoling 李国玲
Beijing: Xianzhuang shuju, 2001
2 vols. 1278 p.

This is a biographical index of over 6100 Song monks, indexed by Buddhist names. The compiler culled information from Buddhist texts as well as collected writings by Song and Yuan Dynasty authors, historical materials, local gazetteers, and biji.
The layout is similar to Chang Bide's index and its supplements. The main index is arranged by the four corners system. There is a name index by stroke order, and there are also indices for variant names.

This title indexes personal names based on numerical designations indicating a person's position in his or her lineage. The entry, giving the last name and numerical name, lists the person's main name, zi and hao, as well as a reference to the source in which the numerical name appears. There is an index of names, including the numerical names, zi and hao. This work is based on a very extensive corpus of texts (including wenji, biji, the two Song examination graduates lists, inscriptions, historical sources, poetry collections, leishu and fangzhi).

For bibliographical information on tomb inscriptions, see Dieter Kuhn and Helga Stahl's Annotated Bibliography to the Shike shiliao xinbianin III.C. In addition note the listing of recently unearthed funerary biographies:

(Chronological Biographies of Song Dynasty Persons)
Wu Hongze 吴洪澤 and Yin Bo 尹波, eds.
Chengdu: Sichuan daxue chubanshe, 2003. 12 vols.

This collection of chronological biographies (nianpu) includes 163 biographies of Song individuals published between Song times and the present. All are punctuated. For those individuals for whom multiple nianpu have been written, a limited number has been selected. The editors focused their selection on older and rare titles. The last volume (volume 12) includes an appendix with four indexes. The main name index indexes all names appearing in the full text and prefatory texts of the nianpu included in the collection. The main name index is arranged according to the four-corner system. For those unfamiliar with the four-corner system, shorter pinyin and stroke-order indexes for all last names follow. There is also a conversion table of Song dynasty years to the western calendar.

Searches can be conducted in individual titles or in several titles or subject categories at the same time (with the exception of Song Huiyao--see VI.B). Unlike the electronic edition of the Siku quanshu, the editions used are in most cases modern punctuated and annotated editions. The titles included and the editions used are listed in an excel sheet (2003). Updates to this sheet can be accessed at the main site listed above. Titles and editions can also be searched from the new interface (currently still under construction) http://140.109.138.237:9080/Handy/index

This collection is noted for its reproductions of rare (particularly Song, Yuan and Ming Dynasty) editions of Song texts. The manual includes a table of titles already included in The Electronic Edition of the Complete Works in the Four Treasuries (see above), but contrasts the (earlier) Sibu congkan editions to the Siku quanshu edition.
The software was developed by the same company that produced The Electronic Edition of the Complete Works in the Four Treasuries. The functionality and layout is therefore very similar (see guides mentioned above).

VIII.D. Offices and Official Titles

For brief overviews of the Sung official system, see the studies by E. A. Kracke, Jr., and Miyazaki Ichisada and the introduction to Charles O. Hucker's Dictionary below. Comprehensive indexes that include official titles will be found in Section VI.

The system of official titles in Sung was made up of several different schedules of titles for denoting rank; these were in turn distinct from the names of the particular functions to which officials were assigned. This is further complicated by the Sung use of T'ang-period functional titles as rank titles and by several Northern Sung reforms of the schedules of titles. The best introduction to this complicated system is:

(W) DS12.A45
LoC: DS12 .A45
"Civil and Military Titles in Sung: The Chi-lu-kuan System."
Umehara Kaoru.
Acta Asiatica 50 (1986): 1-30.


This article includes a chart, in Chinese, giving the rank titles for civil and military officials before and after the system was revised; it also traces normal career routes through the ranks. The index to Umehara's book, a collection of studies on the Sung official system, includes the offices and titles discussed in the book.

See IX.A.2 for a further description.

The most comprehensive dictionary in a European language, listing 4410 with translations into French, references to sources (primarily the "Treatise on the Bureaucracy" of the Sung shih), and some indication of where an office was located within the bureaucracy, is:

Saeki Tomi's indexes to various treatises of the Sung History, noted in Section VI above, also index official titles. In particular note the index to the "Treatise on Bureaucracy":

A convenient source for descriptions of major offices is the Sung volume of the Chung-kuo li-shih ta-tz'u-tien, previously noted, which also explains some of the informal terms used to refer to major offices. The surviving fragments of Wang I-chih's 王益之 late-twelfth century work on the Sung bureaucracy and its historical origins, the [Li-tai] Chih-yuan ts'o-yao,has also been indexed:
