Notes
-  Labels inside case reads: The oldest Chinese printed work in the Library of Congress. This specimen, dated 975 A.D., is the earliest example of Chinese printing in the Library of Congress. It is a Buddhist invocation sutra recovered from the foundations of the famous Lei-feng-t'a (Thunder Peak Pagoda), which for nearly 1,000 years stood on the banks of West Lake in Hangcho but which collapsed on September 25, 1924. A number of Buddhist sutras had been placed in hollow bricks when the pagoda was erected during the reign of Ch'ien Shu (929-88 A.D.) prince of the Kingdom of Wu-yüeh. The printing of 84,000 rolls of this sutra, which contained about 3,000 characters, was ordered, and the rolls were placed in holes bored in the bricks used to erect a seven-story pagoda named Lei feng t'a (Thunder Peak Pagoda) at West Lake in Hangchow, Chekiang, in honor of the consort of Ch'ien Shu. For 950 years this pagoda stood in the banks of the famous lake. When it suddenly collapsed in a thunder-storm on September 25, 1924, a number of the rolls came to light, but with the ravages of time, most of them disintegrated when exposed. The Chekiang Museum has a comparatively perfect specimen containing the frontispiece. The Library of Congress has a mutilated copy of this sutra with the frontispiece missing. Originals in varying degrees of completeness are also found in the British Museum, Harvard-Yenching Library, the University of Chicago, and other collections in China and Japan.
