Footnotes (Shorthand references are explained on a separate page)

1. Table of Contents
Qinxue Xinsheng Xiepu is in QQJC XII 1-160

2. Table of Contents, Folio 2
QQJC XII/60-61. These pages are copied to highlight the fact that the last two pieces seem to have been added separately at the end, qne elsewhere there are references that seem to suggest this handbook had 12 melodies, but all 14 are included here as part of the whole. I have not yet clarified this.
