http://www.cn-classics.com (北京爱如生数字化技术研究中心, Beijing, China) Description: The Song huiyao (宋会要) was compiled by a special office during the Song, collecting important documents on institutions, regulations and constitutions etc. It existed only in manuscript form and got lost later. Larger parts of the Song huiyao were copied into the Ming dynasty encyclopaedia Yongle dadian. From there the texts were recovered by Xu Song 徐松 (1781-1848) and compiled into the work digitized in this database, the Song huiyao jigao 宋會要輯稿 (literally "Draft re-compilation of the Important documents of the Song"). Xu Song's work was never printed. 1936 the Beiping tushuguan published a photomechanical reproduction of his manuscript.
