Of the two manuscript editions of the Yifei fanjing lu in my possession, one is in four stringbound volumes and one is in two. Although they are the same in content, the four-volume edition is missing some of the material found at the end of the two-volume text. The two-volume text is written on thin paper in small characters close to one another; although only half as many volumes, it actually has somewhat more material contained within it. Because these were manuscripts that were not originally separated into juan, they have now become the basis, respectively, for the Iwanami bunko reprint edition in five volumes and the Sonkeikaku bunko reprint edition in three volumes.
