Historical works correcting and supplementing The Song Dynastic History are gathered in the following collection:

(C) DS735.E673 Song Liao Jin Yuan zhengshi dingbu wenxian huibian
(A Collection of Texts Correcting and Supplementing the Song, Liao, Jin and Yuan Dynastic Histories)
Xu Shu 徐蜀, ed.
Beijing: Beijing tushuguan chubanshe, 2004. 3 vols.

This title is part of the series Correcting and Supplementing the Twenty-Five Dynastic Histories (Ershiwu shi dingbu 二十五史訂補), which includes about 160 titles in total. The first volume includes two additions to The Song Dynastic History and is thus of limited use. The series is intended to be used in addition to Supplementing the Twenty-Five Dynastic Histories (Ershiwushi bubian 二十五史補編) published by Kaiming shudian (Shanghai) in 1935 and reprinted by Zhonghua shuju (Beijing) in 1956 and 1986. It only includes titles published before 1949 and does not include those already covered in the aforementioned collection.
