About the book

Contents Preface Introduction I. THE Y1 King FROM THE TWELFTH CENTURY B.C. TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE Christian ERA : There was a V1 in the time of Confucius. The V1 is now made up of the Text, which Confucius saw, and the Appendixes ascribed to him. The V1 escaped the fires of Shin. The V1 before Confucius, and when it was made : mentioned in the Official Book of Kau; in the So Khwan; testimony of the Appendixes. Not the most Ancient of the Chinese books. The Text much older than the Appendixes. Labours of native scholars on the V1 imperfectly described. Erroneous account of the labours of sinologists. II. THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE TEXT. THE LINEAL FIGURES AND THE EXPLANATION OF THEM : The V1 consists of Essays based on lineal figures. Origin of the lineal figures. Who first multiplied them to sixty-four?
