The second volume of Rubbing of Model Letters from the Chunhua Pavilion contains works of calligraphy by or attributed to famous officials of previous periods, including these three in small-standard script thought to be the work of Zhong You (151–230) of the Three Kingdoms period (220–280). Some scholars believe the six works in volume two that are attributed to Zhong are actually copies made by Wang Xizhi, the Calligraphy Sage (circa 303–361). For centuries calligraphers have copied and admired Zhong’s small-standard script for its subtle appearance and serene presentation.
