Title: Index to biographical material in Chin and Yuan literary works, first series
Author(s): Rachewiltz, Igor de

The 'standard histories' of the various Chinese dynasties contain the official biographies of the important figures of the period. However, much additional information can be obtained from epigraphical and other material contained in the literary works of contemporary scholars. This is often scattered in bulky collections and is, therefore, not readily accessible to the historian. Dr de Rachewiltz and Miss Nakano have rendered a singular service to scholars by indexing twenty-three major collections of the Chin and Y{u00FC}an dynasties which are particularly rich in biographical records. They have listed in alphabetical order all the persons in whose honour these records were written, and given concise references to the ch{u00FC}an and page in which the biographies are found.
