Chinese Literature
Nanshi shixiao lu 南史識小錄 and Beishi shixiao lu 北史識小錄


The Four Categories of Literature
Nanshi shixiao lu 南史識小錄 "Small record of knowledge about the Southern Dynasties period" and Beishi shixiao lu 北史識小錄 "Small record of knowledge about the Northern Dynasties period" are historical excerpts about the Southern Dynasties 南朝 (420~589) and Northern Dynasties 北朝 (386~581) periods written by the Qing period 清 (1644-1911) scholars Shen Mingsun 沈名蓀 and Zhu Kuntian 朱昆田. The two authors followed the idea of the Liang-Han bowen 兩漢博聞 and made excerpts of the best paragraphs in the two official dynastic histories Nanshi 南史 and Beishi 北史 with a new arrangement.
There is a manuscript by Liu Wenqi's 劉文淇 Qingxijiuwu Studio 青溪舊屋. The Nanshi shixiaolu and the Beishi shixiaolu included in the collectaneum Siku quanshu 四庫全書.
