There are three texts included; the attribution to Li Jiantang is found in the preface to Mingxing bijiao lu (q.v.). The texts are devoted to earning positive retribution in one’s administrative work, and therefore belong to the “merit and demerit” genre. The work is sometimes dated to the Kangxi period. Rowe (Saving the World, 298) mentions a work by Xiong Hongbei 熊弘備 titled Bu fei qian gongde li 例 (see under Baoshan tang juguan geyan), a “late-seventeenth-century morality book” that Chen Hongmou reprinted in Xunsu yigui 訓俗遺規.
