TitleXiyuan lu bianzheng 洗冤錄辨正
Topic4.2 Magistrates handbooks: Handbooks for legal experts
Historical periodLate Qing (1797-1911)
AuthorQu Zhongrong 瞿中溶
Publication typeWoodblock
CommentRem.: Essentially an effort to collate the 1694 official recension of the Xiyuan lu with earlier versions in order to locate wrong characters and errors; there is also a discussion of the description (shige 尸格) and plate (shitu 尸圖) of the corpse.  Qu indicates in his preface that he used a Yuan edition of the original Xiyuan jilu that he had been able to copy, and collated it with other editions he had acquired. According to him, while the Ministry’s standard edition of the Xiyuan lu should be available in every yamen, he had been able to observe that all too often only faulty small-sized commercial editions (坊刻惡劣小冊) were used, which were kept as “talismans” (護身符) by the clerks and coroners. Qu therefore decided to publish an emended and annotated edition.
Ed.: 1847 edition with prefaces by Li Zhangyu 李璋煜 (1838) and Qu Zhongrong 瞿中溶 (1827), followed by two additional notes by Qu, dated 1829 and 1839 and signed “Mu jushi” and “Weng Laomu 翁老木 at age 70”, respectively. [Harvard]
