May 28, 2012 © Ulrich Theobald

Yicun congshu 佚存叢書 "Collectanea of Surviving Books" (Japanese reading Isson sōsho) is a series of collectanea (congshu 叢書) compiled by the Japanese scholar Tianbao Shanren 天瀑山人 (Hayashi Taira 林衡, i.e. Hayashi Jūsai 林述斎, 1768-1841). It includes 17 books with a total length of 111 juan. All books assembled in the series are lost in China and have only been transmitted in private Japanese libraries. Each text is accompanied by a comment describing its textual history.

The series was compiled during the Kansei 寛政 (1789-1800) and Kyōwa 享和 (1801-1803) reign-periods and was reprinted in 1882 in Shanghai by Huang Cansheng 黃燦生.
