CommentRem.: According to the 1839 postcript by the author’s descendant, Lu Zhen, the manuscript that was printed then had been kept in the Lu family and bore the title, Zhengxia buguo du 政暇補過讀 (Readings for making good one’s mistakes when on vacation from government; this title appears at the end of the text in the Luzi quanshu and Guangren tang eds.). It was composed of reading notes and includes extracts from several Song and Ming authors. The approach tends to be more theoretical in j. 1 (which features mostly quotations from Hu Taichu’s Zhouxian xulun and Lü Benzhong’s Guanzhen [qq.vv.]); it concentrates on the fundamental goals of administration, discussing such issues as how to get along with the populace, underlings, and superiors, litigation and criminal prosecution, the collection of taxes, the application of torture and punishment, and official evaluation. J. 2 features extracts from Ming texts, viz. Chen Yuwang’s 陳于王 Ling Jurong zhengji 令句容政蹟, She Ziqiang’s Zhipu [q.v.], and Li Chenyu’s 李陳玉 Neipian 內篇. This part is somewhat more practical in its emphasis; it discusses successful methods for dealing with such administrative challenges as baojia management, the taking of testimonies, investigating homicides, imprisonment, and many others. The last text is entitled Zhi He yaolüe xu 治河要略序, by Liu Shilin 劉士林. [phtc. table et extraits; n.p.]
