Qiantang xianxian zhuanzan 錢塘先賢傳贊


The Four Categories of Literature
Qiantang xianxian zhuanzan 錢塘先賢傳贊 "Biographies and eulogies for the foremost worthies of Qiantang" is a collection of biographies compiled by the Southern Song period 南宋 (1127-1279) writer Yuan Shao 袁韶 (jinshi degree 1186). In 1226, when he was prefect of the capital Lin'an 臨安 (modern Hangzhou 杭州, Zhejiang), he erected a shrine for the local hero Xu You 許由 and 39 followers from the city of Qiantang 錢塘 (another name of Hangzhou). At that time, Yuan compiled a separate biography for each of them, as well as a poetic eulogy or praise (zan 贊). His collection of biographies is a valuable addition to the official dynastic history of the Song, the Songshi 宋史, was well as local histories like the Dongdu shilüe 東都事略.
The Qiantang xianxian zhuanzan is included in the collectanea Siku quanshu 四庫全書, Zhibuzuzhai congshu 知不足齋叢書 and Wulin zhanggu congbian 武林掌故叢編.
