(Yuwu Qinpu has 52 melodies, four with lyrics. Ten melodies seem to appear for the first time here: #2, #27, #30, #34, #35, #38, #41, #42, #44 and #52. These include four new melodies for older titles. All 52 melodies are also in 1602 except the last [#52]; and almost all of the other 51 seem to be identical to the versions in 1602, the only exception I have found so far being #24.).
