Overview

This book is an English translation of excerpts from a very rare Chinese guqin zither handbook published in Fujian province in China circa 1860. The original book was written in classical Chinese. The translation includes sections on guqin construction, silk qin string making, stringing the qin, qin tables, composition and fingering techniques and other qin culture information useful to qin students. The original title for the book was the Yuguzhai Qinpu (Abiding With Antiquity) and its author was named Zhu Fengjie. Later much of the original content was republished in Shanghai as the Qinxuerumen (Introduction to the Guqin), which was a very popular late Qing dynasty Guqin book.
