This is a page written by Wang Duo for Tang Ruowang, a foreign missionary in China.
Tang Ruowang (also known as Daowei) arrived in China in 1622. Later, at the request of Xu Guangqi, he was recruited by the imperial court to participate in the compilation work of the Calendar Bureau, beginning his thirty-eight-year career in the Ming and Qing dynasties of China. service career. In the first year of Kangxi (1662), Tang Ruowang was finally awarded the title of Guanglu Doctor after eighteen years of official service as Guan Qintian Supervisor. He was able to mend his uniform with a first-grade top belt and embroidered crane, becoming the highest-ranking official in China's history. One of the most famous Europeans, and one of the very few who has been granted a title for three generations and a distant minister who has been favored by others.
Wang Duo surrendered to the Qing Dynasty in Nanjing in the second year of Shunzhi (1645), and arrived in Beijing with Duduo, the general of the Qing army. Perhaps because he heard that his old acquaintance Tang Ruowang had taken over the Qingqin Tianjian in December of the previous year, he decided to write a volume in handwriting as a gift. The content was selected from four seven-character rhymed poems that he gave to Tang Ruowang during the Chongzhen period (1628-1644). . Although the purpose of his writing was never clearly stated in this album (a bound volume of calligraphy works), since Wang Duo was poor and ill at the time, he obviously hoped that this old work would remind the upstart Tang family of their previous friendship. , and provide relief.
There are two seals on the page of the poem volume: "Collection of Ye Family in Yungu" and "Collection of Ye Family in Nanhai Yungu Family". It can be seen that this piece was once collected by Ye Menglong (1775-1832), and was collected by Ye's friend Weng Fanggang (1733-1818) and money.嫫(1744-1806) has received a lot of money. At the end of the Qing Dynasty and the beginning of the Republic of China, this volume belonged to Pei Jingfu (1854-1926). In 1914, Shanghai Civilization Book Company published "Wang Juesi's Poetry Album and Ink Blossoms" and borrowed this work. In 1936, it was originally acquired by Ye Gongchuo and was added to the Erxuanshe edition as " Tibetan seals such as "Ye family in Panyu" and "Gongchuo longevity". Chen Yuan, later the tutor of Chinese Studies at the Peking University Institute and the director of the Capital Library, borrowed the original from Ye Gongchuo, traced the word frame with a fine brush, then copied it with thick ink extensions, and changed the original album format into a banner for circulation.
