Bits of informationEdit
Not much is known about the Cao Zhi biezhuan. Unlike many of Pei Songzhi's sources the book is not mentioned in the Book of Sui (completed in 636 AD). Perhaps the book was no longer extant at that time.
Fragments in Records of the Three KingdomsEdit
Book of Wei 19 - Biography of Cao Zhi, the Prince Si of ChenEdit
- In his book The Records of the Three Kingdoms Rafe de Crespigny lists a Cao Zhi biezhuan 曹植別傳 and not a Cao Zhi biezhuan 曹志別傳. This is a typo, because Pei Songzhi never cited a biezhuan about Cao Zhi 曹植.
