The Jin Wudi zhongjing bu 晉武帝中經簿 (Intermediate Classics of Emperor Wu of Jin) was a Chinese text compiled by Xun Xu and others.

Bits of informationEdit

Xun Xu lived until 289 AD. He was a great grandson of the famous Xun Shuang 荀爽 (128–190), a politician and historian of the Later Han Dynasty. Xun Xu was one of Sima Yan's oldest and closest advisors throughout his reign.

In 274 Xun Xu began a major reorganization of the Jin imperial library including recopying of a very sizable number of texts into a single standard compendium which came to be known as Zhongjing bu.[1] The bibliographical treatise of the Book of Sui desribes this compendium as having been 29.945 scrolls, and divided into four parts, all of which are now lost.
