Zhong Bojing xiansheng zuanji biaoti Chunqiu Zuozhuan jujie 鍾伯敬先生纂輯標題春秋左傳句解.
Compiled by Zhong Xing 鍾惺 (1529–1624). Published by the Mingya tang 明鴉堂. Bamboo paper in four volumes. Ming edition.
On top of the title page there is a red seal in which the picture of the god of literature (Kuixing 魁星) is presented with dragon designs. On the lower left of the same page there is a red seal in cursive writing, but it is illegible.
The title of this book, given on the title page in large characters (see above), is quite confusing. The preface by Wang Ao 王鏊 (1450–1524, cf. Jap-Sin I, 4), dated Zhengde 8 (正德癸酉, 1513) was written for the Chunqiu Zuozhuan bidu jujie 春秋左傳必讀句解. In the middle of each folio the title is given as Zuozhuan zhujie 左傳註解.
On the first page of juan 1, Zhong Xing (zi 伯敬) is named as the compiler of the commentaries, while Zhao Wei 趙惟 (zi 最我) and Lü Wang 呂望 (zi 陽詹) were proofreaders. The comments at the head of the page are taken from well known scholars of different periods, especially those of contemporary Ming scholars such as Chen Renxi 陳仁錫 (1581–1636), Chen jiru 陳繼儒 (1558–1639) and Li Zhi 李贄 (1527–1602). Zhong Xing himself frequently interjects remarks.
