(42.8) Lǐ Zhuàn 李譔 [Qīnzhòng 欽仲]

Lǐ Zhuàn, appellation Qīnzhòng, was a Zǐtóng Fú man. His father Rén, appellation Déxián, along with Yǐn Mò of his fellow county together traveled to Jīngzhōu, and followed Sīmǎ Huī, Sòng Zhōng, and others to study. Zhuàn inherited his work, and also followed Mò in discussing doctrine, the Five Classics and the various Masters. There was nothing he did not read. He loved the arts, arithmetic, numerical divination, medicine, bow and crossbow shooting, mechanics, and in all these he was skilled. He began as a provincial Librarian Assistant and Clerk to the Director of the Secretariat.

李譔字欽仲,梓潼涪人也。父仁,字德賢,與同縣尹默俱游荊州,從司馬徽、宋忠等學。譔具傳其業,又從默講論義理,五經、諸子,無不該覽,加博好技藝,算術、卜數、醫藥、弓弩、機械之巧,皆致思焉。始為州書佐、尚書令史。

Yánxī first year [238], Hòu-zhǔ established an Heir-Apparent, and appointed Zhuàn as his companion, promoted to aide. He was transferred to Internal Scattered Palace Official and Right Internal Gentlemen-General, while remaining as attendant to the Heir-Apparent. The Heir-Apparent favored his great knowledge, and was very pleased with him. However his actions were frivolous, and he liked to tease, so the people of the time did not take him seriously.

延熙元年,後主立太子,以譔為庶子,遷為僕。(射)轉中散中大夫、右中郎將,猶侍太子。太子愛其多知,甚悅之。然體輕脫,好戲啁,故世不能重也。

He annotated the [jīng], Shàngshū, Máo [edition] Shī, Sānlǐ, Zuǒshìzhuàn, Tàixuánzhǐguī, and in all these his standards followed Jiǎ and Mǎ and were different from Zhèng Xuán. With Wáng [Sù] their differences were not many, and often their views were the same.

著古文易、尚書、毛詩、三禮、左氏傳、太玄指歸,皆依準賈、馬,異於鄭玄。與王氏殊隔,初不見其所述,而意歸多同。

During Jǐngyào [258-263] he died. At the time there was Chén Shù of Hànzhōng, styled Shēnbó, who was also of wide learning and knowledge, who composed a Shìwèn of seven volumes and Yìbùqíjiù Zhuàn and Zhì, and reached office as Administrator of Sān-jùn.

景耀中卒。時又有漢中陳術,字申伯,亦博學多聞,著釋問七篇、益部耆舊傳及志,位歷三郡太守。
