This special collection was compiled by Pan Shicheng, also known as Deyu, who was from the Fanyu county of Guangdong. He served as the director of the Ministry of Defense. He was famous for his library at his private villa Haishanxianguan (Sea Hill House), which housed his private collection of literary works. Pan selected his predecessors’ works from that collection and compiled these outstanding masterpieces into the “Hanshanxianguan Collection”. This collection consists of 56 books from the Tang and Song Dynasty to the Ming & Qing Dynasty. It was organized into subjects like Confucian classics, history, various scholars’ works and corpus. The books contained within the collection cover a broad range of subjects including mathematics, geography, medicine, ancient gunsmithing, military strategy, and Chinese and foreign literature. A notable rarity here are the texts on mathematics. Finally, a number of these volumes were engraved during the Daoguang and Xianfeng Emperor periods in Fan Yu.
