Example text

33 Although Yan Shigu’s own Xuanyan xinji ming Lao bu ᪐⤵ᅘ⥆ᆙ≘ⵒ, of which a fragment survives among Pelliot’s Dunhuang manuscripts, generally follows Heshang gong’s reading and reproduces in the introduction the Heshang gong lore, Yan also was interested in what Wang Bi had to say. He writes in a slightly confusing passage: Wang Bi, zi Fusi, from Shanyang, managed in his official career to become a shangshu lang. [He died] in the 10th year of the zhengshi era [249] in his 24th year. [I, Yan Shigu] checked a [Liu] Song manuscript which said: “Wang Fusi was famous among later [generations] for his Commentary on the Daode [jing] in two pian; he linked the symbols [for heaven and earth], the highest yang number being the 9, he set the limit at nine times nine.

Instead of following the Ming editions as everyone else had done, he looked for the earliest available texts of the Commentary and found them in the various editions of “collected commentaries” to the Laozi that had been put together between the eleventh and the thirteenth centuries. His focus though was on the different lineages of the text of the Laozi, not on the commentaries. So while quoting what he thought were the best commentary texts, he did not establish a critical text for the commentaries included in his work, including the Wang Bi Commentary.
