HUANG DI NEI JING AND SU WEN IN EARLY BIBLIOGR




As noted by Liu Changlin, titles such as Huang Di nei jing and Su wen are conspicuously
absent from Sima Qian Shi jivOof 90 b.c. Sima Qians
biography of Chunyu Yi E_N, which includes a detailed list of ten medical
texts received by Chunyu Yi from his teacher Yang Qing y, would have
provided an opportunity to mention such a fundamental text corpus if it
had existed.15
The earliest known reference to a Huang Di nei jing is in a work titled Qi
leC. This text was compiled by Liu Xin B(d. a.d. 23) in the first century
b.c. on the basis of the Bie luO, an earlier bibliography compiled by
Liu Xins father, Liu Xiang BV(77?6 b.c.). The Qi le was a catalog of the
holdings of the Han court library at Changan after 26 b.c. It was lost in the
centuries following the Han dynasty but is quoted explicitly in the Jia yi jing
Ag by Huangfu Mi (215282), a text that is still extant.
Huangfu Mi wrote in his preface to the Jia yi jing: The bibliographic section
of the Qi le [lists a] Huang Di nei jing in 18 juan.
Today there exist a Zhen jingwgin 9 juan and a Suwen in 9 juan. Nine plus
9 adds up to 18. Hence [these two texts] constitute the Nei jing [of the Qi
le].16
