Classical Historiography for Chinese History

Bibliographies for traditional Chinese science & medical texts

Mention should be made of the series of volumes in the 歷 代 中 醫 名 著 文 庫, published by 華 夏 出 版 社 in Beijing, which began publishing circa 1995. This project, organized by Ren Yingqiu, Ma Jixingg, and others, provides first-rate critical eds. of ancient texts (unfortunately in simplified chars.), with detailed critical notes and substantial, usually innovative, scholarly essays on the text. Some are detailed volume-length treatments of individual texts; so far there is the 醫 心 方 and 證 類 本 草. Other volumes are collections of texts of a given type. The one on acupuncture, entitled 針 灸 名 著 集 成, contains about a dozen important works, some extremely rare, and all in superior critical editions. For instance, the illustrations in two well-known works, 銅 人 俞 穴 針 灸 圖 經 (1026) and 針 灸 大 成 (1601) are far superior to those previously published; both, for instance, show skeletons as part of acupuncture figures.
