TitleDa Ming lü jishuo fuli 大明律集說附例[A Collection of Commentaries on the Code of the Great Ming with Substatutes]
Topic1. Code and commentaries
Historical periodLate Ming (1585-1644)
AuthorFeng Zi 馮孜 (redacted); Liu Dawen 劉大文 (comp.)
Publication typeWoodblock
CommentRem. : The complete title with the words “fuli” appears only at the head of the chapters, where four collaborators are also listed, including Feng Zi, Liu Dawen, as well as Zhao Shouzu as “reader” (閱) and Wang Deguang as collator (校); the latter, a prefectural judge (司理) of Anqing (Anhui), was entrusted by Zhao Shouzu, the Anqing prefect, with having the work engraved and published. The prefaces clearly designate Liu as the author; according to Zhao Shouzu’s preface, he assembled the commentaries of the suojian 瑣見 and guanjian 管見, as well as an “explanatoriy commentary by Feng Zi” (及原泉馮公所註律解). The short introductory part entitled Da Ming lü jishuo fuli tu 圖 only features the lists of rates of punishment redemption for various categories of people. The commentary proper follows the order of statutes in the Code, of which it provides the titles but does not quote the text. The commentary usually is in two parts: an explanatory enlargement of the text of the statute, possibly distinguishing several paragraphs with circles; and a general, more qualitative and analytical commentary, starting on a new column and marked by a circle followed by the words “this article …” (此條…); this is followed with the substatutes (tiaoli), distinguished with the character “一”. The sources commentaries are not indicated. The central margins only indicate the part of the Code, not the section or the statute, making consultation somewhat inconvenient.
