The Veritable Records of Ming Emperor Shizong with Handwritten Preface by Ye Dehui
Item No. : 116096
1913 A. D.
This is a Ming dynasty Tianyi Ge edition of the Veritable Records compiled by Zhang Juzheng. In 1913, Ye Dehui wrote notes in this copy saying: "The Ming History's 'Basic Annals of Shizong' was taken from this, and many of the important memorials of the officials are in their respective biographies." Although "the Veritable Records mentions many events only indirectly, it still can't cover them up completely. If one wants to know the good and the bad about this dynasty, you must have this book on your shelf."
