Bibliographies and Catalogues (mulu lei 目錄類)

Jul 8, 2010 © Ulrich Theobald

Bibliographies and Catalogues (mulu lei 目錄類) is a subcategory in traditional Chinese bibliographies and part of the category of Historiography (shibu 史部). These are in most cases arranged according to a coherent system of categories. An index provides an overview of the inventory of a library, or the writings included in a collections, and in the latter case also as a table of contents. The word mulu also means table of contents and is used at the beginning of books as a list displaying the names and numbers (number of juan "scrolls") of the chapters.
The section on catalogues in the series Siku quanshu 四庫全書 is divided into two parts, the first including pure book catalogues (jingji 經籍), the second books on inscriptions (jinshi 金石) in metal vessels and stones slabs, as well as sources on model calligraphy. The first section includes 11 books, the second 36 books.
