Abstract: COMPILED FOR EMPEROR TAIZONG ( R . 976-997) IN THE EARLY SONG DYNASTY, THE TAIPING YULAN WAS INTENDED TO BE AN ESSENTIAL REFERENCE FOR HIS RULING. BY READING THREE SCROLLS PER DAY UPON ITS COMPLETION, EMPEROR TAIZONG HOPED TO GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF STATE GOVERNANCE. GIVEN THE HUGE COLLECTION OF DATA, I T TOOK HIM AROUND 3 YEARS TO FINISH READING ALL TOGETHER 1000 SCROLLS OF THE COLLECTANEA WHICH COVERS 55 TOPICAL CATEGORIES FROM 2579 BOOKS. ZHANG SHUNHUI ¿¿¿ (1911-1992) HAD POINTED OUT THAT THE "CITATIONS" OR "DESCRIPTIONS" IN THE YULAN DO NOT MATCH UP WITH THE SOURCE- TEXTS FROM WHICH THEY WERE SUPPOSEDLY EXTRACTED, AS THE COMPILERS MIGHT NOT COPY THEIR SOURCE - TEXTS VERBATIM. OF TEN ONLY THE GIST OF THE CREDITED SOURCE WOULD BE RECORDED. BY COMPARING THE CITATIONS IN THE YULAN TO THEIR SOURCES, THIS STUDY POINTS OUT THE TENDENCIES AND THE UNSPOKEN GUIDELINES OF THE COMPILATION OF THE COLLECTANEA BASED ON TWO CASE STUDIES OF THE YUE JUE SHU AND WU YUE CHUNQIU.
