A sequel to Xing’an huilan (q.v.) and its first continuation, covering cases from the years 1838-71. The compilation was started in 1871 by Wu Chao, He Xiyan, and Li Fangyu in cooperation with Xue Yuncheng—Wu and Xue being then in charge of the autumn assizes; Xue is named as “supervisor” (鑒定) in the chapter captions. After the completion of the first draft, He Xiyan took it to his new post in Hubei and worked on it to make it simpler, but he died before being finished and the task was overtaken by his friend Lan Peiqing, who produced the final ms. and had it published in 1884. Changchun’s pref. to the 1900 ed. insists that the work is not useless compared to the shorter but better circulated Xinzeng xing’an huilan (q.v.). Close to 1,700 cases have been collected from sources similar to those of the original Xing’an huilan, of which close to 1,200 are memoranda (說帖) and about 250 are leading cases (成案), the rest consisting of circulars (通行), memorials (奏議), and internal communications (咨覆). A narrow register (6 characters per column) is reserved at top of page, containing sparse annotations on problems of procedure. The content of each case is indicated in the lower central margin. There is a detailed mulu at the beginning of each juan. The end of j. 32 is devoted to the regulations on fugitives (督捕則例) and to internal procedures of the ministry (刑部事宜).
