May 29, 2012 © Ulrich Theobald

Huangzheng congshu 荒政叢書 is a short series including books on disaster relief from the Song 宋 (960-1279) to the Qing period 清 (1644-1911). The 10-juan long series was compiled by the mid-Qing period scholar Yu Sen 俞森 (fl. 1817).

It includes books from several centuries, but mostly from the Ming period 明 (1368-1644), as well as three short texts by Yu Sen himself. The Huangzheng congshu is itself included in the series Siku quanshu 四庫全書, Mohai jinhu 墨海金壺 and Shoushange congshu 守山閣叢書.
