Zhongguo fanglüe congshu 中國方略叢書 "Collectaneum of Military Annals"

The Zhongguo fanglüe congshu 中國方略叢書 "Collectaneum of military annals" is a collectaneum of military annals (fanglüe 方略) published by the Wencheng Press 成文出版社 in Taibei between 1961 and 1971. It consists of two series, the first of which was published between 1961 and 1968, and the second between 1970 and 1971. The first series includes 24 titles in 120 volumes, the second 6 titles in 92 volumes. It concentrates on books that are rarely to be found and that are not part of the imperial collectaneum Siku quanshu 四庫全書, either because the books are younger, or considered not worth being included in it. There are, nevertheless, a few exceptions: The Huang-Qing kaiguo fanglüe 皇清開國方略 and the Qinzheng pingding Shuomo fanglüe 親征平定朔漠方略 are important military annals of the founding and the expansion of the Qing empire 清 (1644-1911) that are included in the Siku quanshu. The first series begins with a collection of annals that describe the war against the White Lotus sect 白蓮教, the Nian rebellion 捻, Muslim (Hui 回) rebels and the Miao tribes 苗 in southwest China, the Pingding qisheng fanglüe 平定七省方略 "Military annals of the suppression of the [rebels] in the seven provinces [Yunnan, Guizhou, Gansu, Shaanxi, Xinjiang and Guangxi/Guangdong]". There are several books on Ming period 明 (1368-1644) campaigns in the first collection, like Jiajing dongnan ping Wo lu 嘉靖東南平倭錄, Wanli san da zheng kao 萬曆三大征考 and Mingji beilüe 明季北略, and some treatises from the late Qing period, like Wang Kaiyun's 王闓運 Xiangjunzhi 湘軍志 and Wang Ding'an's 王定安 Xiangjunji 湘軍記 that describe the history of the new Hunan Army. Other books in the first series are very rare, like the Pipanji 平叛記, the Nanjiang yishi 南疆繹史, the Hunan Miao fang tunzheng kao 湖南苗防屯政考, a book on the control over the Miao tribes in Hunan, or the Zhedong choufang lu 浙東籌防錄, a book on maritime defense in Zhejiang. The second series includes some military annals from the late 18th and the 19th century, and several rare books on special aspects of military history in late imperial China, like the Xiangyang bingshi lüe 襄陽兵事略, a military history of the city of Xiangyang, Hubei.
