Abstract

中國的志書不僅源遠流長,而且種類繁多。除了記載各級行政區的地方志外,還有大量記錄某一特定區域內某項或某方面內容的專志。然而,幾乎所有研究志書的學者都忽略了一種記載政府某部門典章故事的可稱之為“官署志”的專志。這種官署志的編印在明代達到一個新的高峰,而且多集中在留都南京。本文在回顧官署志起源的基礎上,集中討論明代南都官署志的編撰特點、內容及其史料價值。
Dating back to the Warring States period (475 221 BC), the gazetteer is a unique genre in Chinese historiography for recording important information regarding a certain place or institute. While the genre is well known, practically none of the gazetteer experts in China are aware of a special type of gazetteer, which records the history, functions and personnel of a government department. Termed as “departmental gazetteer” by the author of this paper, the compilation of this kind of gazetteer reached climax in the Ming dynasty (1368 1644). This paper, after reviewing the history of the departmental gazetteers in the pre Ming periods, focuses on the features, contents, and historical values of the departmental gazetteers compiled by the officials at the auxiliary southern capital(Nanjing) of Ming China It concludes that these departmental gazetteers are valuable sources for studying the two capital system of the Ming dynasty and should be noted by both gazetteer experts and historians.
