Of the Yi, the Shu, and the Shih, it is only in the first that we find additions attributed to the philosopher himself, in the shape of appendixes. The Ch'un Ch'iu is the only one of the five Ching which can, with an approximation to correctness, be described as of his own 'making.'1 ยคยญยธg. 2 ยฅ|ยฎร‘. 3 ยฉรถยธg. 4 ยฎร‘ยธg. 5 ยธร–ยธg. 6 ร‚ยงยฐO. 7 ยฌKยฌรฎ.
