    Originally a woodblock print from 1718. None of the compilers of this edition lived during the period of the Qianlong Emperor; however, the date recorded in this edition may be as late as Qianlong 20, or 1755. The handwriting of the transcription varies, showing that it was written by different people; therefore, this edition is likely a revision, based on the 1718 edition.
