Ershier zi 二十二子 "Twenty-two Masters"


The Ershier zi 二十二子 "Twenty-two Masters" is a collectaneum compiled by the Zhejiang Publishing House 浙江書局 during the late Qing period 清 (1644-1911). It includes 22 books of early "masters and philosophers" (zi 子) with a total length of 349 juan. The texts are based on qualitatively high-ranking Ming period 明 (1368-1644) prints or text-critical editions from the early and high Qing period. To many books, additional critical material is added. The book was in 1985 reprinted as a facsimile by the Shanghai guji press 上海古籍出版社. There are a lot of other books bearing the same or a similar title that include the same books as the Ershier zi, yet in a different order and of a lower quality. These are the Zishu ershier zhong 子書二十二種, also published by the Zhejiang Printing House, and Wang Xiangtang's 王纕堂 Nianerzi quanshu 廿二子全書 that partially includes other titles than the Ershier zi.
