TitleCheng An xinbian erji 成案新編二集
Topic2.1 Judicial cases: general casebooks
Historical periodEarly Qing (1644-1796)
AuthorMin Wobei 閔我備
Publication typeWoodblock
AbstractThe prefaces mention a Cheng’an xinbian chuji 初集 by the same compiler, possibly lost, which had been printed by a certain Vice-Minister of Personnel Wang 王少宰, from Huating [possibly Wang Huifen 王會汾] and widely circulated among specialists, for whom it was an incomparable guide in their judgments; the sponsor of the present compilation is Yan Xishen, the Jiangxi Provincial Judge, who had invited Min Wobei as an advisor. The years covered are 1756 to 1762. The compilation is organized along the parts and sections of the Penal Code. The general mulu at the start, which takes two fascicles, lists the cases one by one under the relevant statute (all the 430 statutes are not represented). In the body of the work the relevant part and section of the code are indicated in the central margin. (phtgr., revoir)
