Ouyang Xiu (1007-1072) was one of the leading cultural figures of the Northern Song Dynasty. He undertook to compile his own writings shortly before his death. In 1191 Zhou Bida and other scholars started to compile and engrave the 153-juan Ouyang Wenzhong Gong Ji, which became the best edition of the book and provided a sound basis for subsequent versions thereafter.
