Ten lines, with twenty characters per line. 原題:「檇李郁逢慶叔遇父編。」按是書無刻本,四庫全書據兩淮鹽政採進本著錄,提要云:「前集末有自識云:「所見法書名畫,錄其題詠,積成卷帙,時崇禎七年冬也。後集無跋,則不知其成於何歲矣。」余紹宋所見藝風堂鈔本,逢慶自跋亦在前集末,此本則在續記末,題云:「崇禎七年自春徂冬,集為正續二十四卷,乃記於後」,則正續兩集成於同年,殆館臣所據本,所題與此不同歟?抑偶疏於覽閱歟?提要又云:「第一至第四卷,每卷之尾,皆有崇禎甲戌冬日收藏題記」,此本卷四卷六之尾,則與四庫本,當同出一源,其內容亦當相同。此本「玄」字「弘」字並缺筆。為乾隆間寫本,亦與四庫成書年代相近也。然前集卷二之末,米西清雲山小卷下有題記云:「崇禎丙子四月望後二日,觀于周敏仲舟中」,丙子為崇禎九年,是書編定後之第三年也。則成書後逢慶猶有補輯,未必為後人所增也。自跋崇禎七年(1634).
