折獄龜鑑補(一)Rem.: A short collection of 43 exemplary judicial cases drawn from history, in the same format as the Yiyu jian or the Zheyu guijian (qq.vv.), followed by brief commentaries. The work was compiled after the Xiangxing gujian and as a complement and is supposed to give examples of moderation in administering justice. It starts with the classic apology of Ouyang Xiu’s father, a model for magistrates who want to spare those accused of capital crimes. Lü Kun’s Xingzheng jielu (q.v.) is appended.
This book is appended to the Xiangxing gujian (q.v.) by the same author.
