CommentRem.: Documents and regulations on forensics dating mostly from the first three reigns of the Yuan. The work draws heavily from the Xiyuan lu and Pingyuan lu (qq.vv.), which it criticizes in many places. The front part (13 entries) includes discussions (lunbian 論辨) on various points, composed by Wang Yu himself. J. 1 (geli 格例, 17 entries) includes model forms, recommendations and regulations (in the form of approved precedents) on forensic examination dating to the early Yuan period. (The text cites a precedent of 1315 and mentions the examination of the corpse of a pregnant woman done by Wang Yu in 1323, suggesting that Wang may have produced a revised edition following the first ed. with 1308 preface.) Most ancient editions are limited to the contents above. J. 2 (43 entries), as reconstructed by Shen Jiaben, is likewise composed of excerpts from the Yuan-period reporting model called jie’an shi 結案式, and from the Xiyuan jilu and Pingyuan lu. This section, which is absent from the Ming eds., is comparable in contents and format to the Xiyuan jilu, with a general statement (jianyan zongshuo 檢驗總說) at the beginning, followed by the discussion of specific points. The Japanese annotated edition is based on a Korean annotated edition which is not datable [the postface is dated gengshen]; its contents (front part, j. 1 composed of 17 geli, j. 2 composed of 43 entries) are the same as those in the reconstructed Shen Jiaben recension. The notes inserted in the text in smaller characters are rather simplistic and obviously intended for a non-Chinese audience; they also mention the borrowings from the Xiyuan lu. As noted by the Siku commentators, compared with the Xiyuan jilu it contains useful new materials; the presentation has also been somewhat improved and simplified (with 43 entries instead of 53). In the Zhenbilou congshu ed. (which is used as a basis for Yang Fengkun’s modern recension), the entire material have been reorganized into 2 juan by including the front part in j. 1. [n.p. LG] (phtgr. postface éd. japonaise, phtc. extraits éd. Yang Fengkun)
