  • -  明許論撰。字廷議,靈寶人。嘉靖五年進士,授順德推官,入為兵部主事,改禮部。好談兵。幼從父歷邊境,盡知阨塞險易,因著九邊圖論上之;帝喜,頒邊臣議行,自是以知兵聞。見明史卷一百八十六本傳。嗣後邊事日亟,其書遂大行於世,嘉萬以來,所有著述遂鮮有不道及是書者矣。是書明史藝文志作三卷,萬卷堂書目不著卷數,且誤撰人為謝少南,然注明二冊,則當亦是三卷本。蓋三卷本為嘉靖間原刻,此則萬曆間何鏜輯刻修攘通考零本也,讀書敏求記作一卷,疑亦為此本。四庫存目卷七十五載修攘通考四卷,提要云:「此編以??蘇軾地理指掌圖與許論九邊圖等三書,合而刊之,別立此名,更無一字之論者。」按館臣所據為殘本,北平圖書館藏修攘通考全書,凡四種,六卷。謝少南(序)嘉靖十七年(1538),馬從謙(後序)嘉靖十七年(1538),宋宜(跋)嘉靖十七年(1538),劉希簡(書後)嘉靖十七年(1538).
