  Damage to Zhu Changfang's Preface        
This handbook, compiled by Zhu Changfang, was reprinted in Qinqu Jicheng, IX/245-386. Of its 50 listed melodies, at least 15 of them seem to be the earliest surviving published version.

- 朱常淓序 Zhu Changfang preface (see image at right; "?" usually means a missing character;2 IX/247):
嵇中散云:「衆器之中,琴德最 優。」又謂,「知音者希,(孰能珍兮。)能盡雅琴,惟 至人。」則談何容易?孤於琴理,素 心有獲,豈徒宜舷徽協宮商而 已哉?誠以導養神氣,宣和情志 焉耳。回?????其宗趣不 欲以大推之音而成?和將共 鳴于世焉夾世多譜集精?為 難或受故而逐新聲,或沿流而 陳雜調,或妄構於伶人之操弄,或 混拾於花奴之羯鼓,或遺美 而將類廣陵,或散軼而幾曰焦 尾,或如趙師之論,吳蜀李龜年 之辨。秦楚其聲。曲卒未免以 地限,以習違者茲。蓋考古援今, 划然折衷,得若干闋,以示同好。 若管厭之吹律,若姬車之指 路,若窺河而數星,若呼谷而答 響。非德音逸韻不收非存教雅 風不采。可以含天地之醇和,吸 日月之休光矣。五弦在
上,孤宣其意,王風鼓動,眾游其天,是譜也,不大有裨耶。彼若孔子之受學師襄,暗中想像,神遇文王者,獨有得於譜之先,詎能離譜而為之摹索?故曰,「人不能無樂,樂不能無形,形而不為道,不能無亂。則譜正按形合道之法也」。夫苟能知此即屬至人,從中散而下一注,未為過焉。

A study of the differing versions of Yuhua and comparing these to Yueyang San Zui might could be quite instructive.)

Footnotes (Shorthand references are explained on a separate page)

1. Table of Contents
The handbook itself did not have a table of contents.
(Return)

2. Damage on the pages in the above image
Jerome Kerlouegan has kindly sent me images of two of the three damaged pages. They had been sent to him from the Shanghai Library, but either they had not copied image 1a, or the their copy of the handbook was missing that page. The two they had are here:

DIR>1a (missing)
1b: view
2a: view

Thus if a character is missing from the transcription above it is probably because I could not read it.

3. Later short versions of GLS
The linked chart lists them, but they all seem based not on the version here but on the second one (≥1802)
