Collection of historical records of persons and events after the Ming Dynasty in the Songjiang area of Shanghai; although collected in the "Qing ren shuo hui" series, the few copies that circulated were handwritten; in handwriting style. 函面題"說夢",函脊題"說夢六卷,抄本。附:官(卷内作"宦")歷漫記;守鄖紀略"。書根上冊題"說夢",下冊題"宦歷漫記;守鄖紀略"。封面上冊題:"說夢,凡六卷,雲間曹家駒撰",下冊題:"宦歷漫記,守鄖紀略,甬上高斗樞撰"。無書名葉。卷首額題"說夢卷一",下署"雲間曹家駒千里氏著",宦歷漫記下署"甬上高斗樞象先",守鄖紀略下署"前巡撫陝西右副都御史高斗樞著"。版心下題每卷頁碼,宦歷漫記及守鄖紀略空白無葉碼。冊1含卷1-4,冊2含卷5-6,李鄴嗣題記,宦歷漫記,守鄖紀略,綏寇紀略。本書記松江一帶明以來史事人物雜紀。李鄴嗣題記前有闕葉,記明軍與李自成攻守鄖陽事。宦歷漫記,守鄖紀略亦主要记李自成事,頗具史料價值. 《綏寇紀略》錄有金曹材《徐啟元墓志》。徐啟元為鄖陽同知,守鄖陽與李自成戰達二年半之久。後題:"右徐啟元墓志,載《綏寇紀略》穀房變注中。注中其記 ... 似與卷中少異,故附錄之,以備參考。乙亥九月十七日,燈下義門記。"此義門疑即何焯(1661-1722),乙亥為康熙34年(1695),何焯時年35歲。書末另有一段題記:"丙子春王十日篝燈摘抄,適醒泉馮表兄署蘇教授還里,乘月來晤,相與茶話,而別漏已三下矣。" 未署名。按丙子即乙亥之次年,康熙35年(1696),竊疑同為何焯所書。查所提"醒泉馮表兄"名馮以昌,字魏蕃,號醒泉,吟秋,孝惠先生。此人是否是何焯之表兄,待查。如是,則此書為何焯鈔本,價值不凡.
