Mice huihan 秘冊彙函 "Collected Bookcases of Secret Volumes"


The Mice huihan 秘冊彙函 or Bice huihan 祕册彙函 is a draft version of a collectaneum compiled by the Ming period 明 (1368-1644) scholars 沈士龍 Shen Shilong and 胡震亨 Hu Zhenheng.
Hu Zhenheng (1505-1585), courtesy name Hu Xiaoyuan 胡孝轅, style Dunsou 遁叟 or Chicheng shanren 赤誠诚山人, was a book collector and publisher. He came from Haiyan 海鹽 in Zhejiang and was first magistrate of Hefei 合肥, later prefect of Dingzhou 定州, finally a vice director (yuanwailang 員外郎) in the Ministry of War (bingbu 兵部). As an expert of ancient writings he was praised by the philosopher and writer Huang Zongxi 黄宗羲. He owned more than 10,000 precious books from the Song 宋 (960-1279) and Yuan 元 (1279-1368) periods, with a focus on literature and poetry. He had compiled a book on Tang period 唐 (618-907) phonology, the Tangyun tongjian 唐音統鋻, and was also known as the author of the books Jingkang zijian lu 靖康咨鋻錄, Chicheng shanren gao 赤誠山人稿, Haiyan tujing 海鹽圖經, and Dushu zazhi 讀書雜志. He furthermore authored a chapter to a local gazetteer, the Yanyi yiwen zhi 鹽邑藝文志. The manuscript of the collectaneum Mice huihan unfortunately burnt in an accident, and only fragments were surviving. Wholly ruined, Hu Zhenheng tried to reconstruct the original as far as possible and sold these fragments to the book collector Mao Jin 毛晉 (1599-1659) who supported Hu in the reconstruction of the text and published it under the name Jindai mishu 津逮秘書. The surviving parts are included under the name of Mice huihan in the collectanea Baibu congshu 百部叢書 (no. 15) and the Congshu jicheng 叢書集成, but only selectively. In the latter the books are scattered over various chapters. In the table below they are identified as the titles not marked with an asterisk *. The Mice huihan has not achieved wider attention because it includes texts that are also to be obtained easily in other collections. The only exception is Jiang Yan's 江淹 short text Tongjianzan 銅劎讚.
