48Chang Erh-ch'i 張爾岐 (T. 稷若. H. 蒿陽). A.D. 1611–1677. A native of 濟陽 Chi-yang in Shantung, who distinguished himself by his writings on the Canons of Rites and of Changes, and also on the Spring and Autumn. After the fall of the Ming dynasty, he lived in retirement; and his writings only came into notice when the Emperor Ch'ien Lung ordered a search to be made for all works of merit.
