Volume contains two works: Chang'an kehua. Zhuozhong zhi / Jiang Yikui, Liu Ruoyu zhu = 長安客話. 酌中志 / 蔣一葵, 劉若愚著.

2nd work Zhuozhong zhi (about 1618), by Liu Ruoyu, eunuch of the late Ming period; notes on events and proceedings in the imperial palace, in particular under the last four emperors. One of the very few works written by a eunuch, a highly relevant source for the events and life in the inner palace (written between 1628-1644). Cf. W. Franke, An Introduction to the Sources of Ming History, p. 105-105 (4.2.7)
