Hui'an ji 晦庵集 "Collection from the XXX Studio"


Hui'an ji 晦庵集 "Collection from the XXX Studio" are the collected writings of the Southern Song period 南宋 (1127-1279) Neo-Confucian master Zhu Xi 朱熹 (1130-1200). The collection is 100 juan "scrolls" long, with two continuations, the Xuji 續集 (5 juan) and Bieji 別集 (7 juan). Zhu Xi's style was Hui'an 晦庵, for which reason part of the collection was originally called Hui'an ji 晦庵集 or Hui'an Zhu xiansheng wenji 晦庵朱先生文集 (or Hui'an xiansheng Zhu Wengong wenji 晦庵先生朱文公文集). His posthumous title was Zhu Wengong 朱文公, a circumstance leading to the collection's alternative title Zhu Wengong wenji 朱文公文集. From the 1688 edition on that was published by Cai Fangbing 蔡方炳 and Zang Meixi 臧眉錫 the title was Zhuzi daquan ji 朱子大全集, but was later abbreviated to Zhuzi daquan 朱子大全. Under this title it is also included in the imperial collectaneum Siku quanshu 四庫全書, the Sibu congkan 四部叢刊, Sibu beiyao 四部備要 and the Hongshi Tangshijingguan congshu 洪氏唐石經館叢書. The compiler of the Hui'an ji is unknown, but some Ming period 明 (1368-1644) editions say that Zhu Xi's son Zhu Zaibian 朱在編 compiled the main part of the collection, and Yu Shilu 余師魯 the Bieji collection. The preface by Huang Yong 黃鏞 dates from 1265.
In the bibliography Zhizhai shulu jieti 書錄解題 the Hui'an ji is listed along with a 3 juan long annalistic biography called Ziyang nianpu 紫陽年譜 (Ziyang 紫陽 was another sobriquet of Zhu Xi).
The collection includes his most important philosophical writings like Sishu zhangju jizhu 四書集注 or Zhouyi benyi 周易本義, and his interpretation of the collection "Poetry of the South", Chuci jizhu 楚辭集注, a collection of commentaries to the "Book of Songs", Shi jizhuan 詩集傳, and his poems and prose writings, the Hui'an ji proper. These emcompass private writings like rhapsodies or poems, and also official writings like memorials and correspondence with the authorities. Yet a lot of Zhu Xi's writings are not included in the Hui'an ji, like his philosophical interpretation of history, the famous Tongjian gangmu 通鑒綱目.
