V.C. DATES OF SUNG FIGURES



Birth and death dates are included in the Sung-jen index discussed above. For the dates alone the most handy reference is:

(W) Ref DS734.W38 Répertoire des dates des hommes célèbres des Song.
Weng T'ung‑wen.
Paris: École Pratique des Hautes Études, 1962. 192 p.

This includes examination degree dates. Names are in the French romanization system (there is a character index); Chinese characters are included.

Corrections have been made to Weng's work in

(W) DS751.S83
LoC: DS751 .S83
"The Dates of Eminent Persons in Sung."
Yi-lo Ma.
Sung Studies Newsletter 11-12 (1975-76): 23-49,

which corrects dates for 255 individuals, including 106 not in the Weng list, based on

9200/2470.1
LoC: DS701 .Y86
