Chen Zhan (1752-1817) was a prominent emendator and bibliophile in Qianlong-Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty. Expert in the study of Confucian classics, Chen particularly held Zheng Xuan in high esteem. Chen also processed a good knowledge of philological studies and semasiology, wherewith he had a liking of Shouwen jiezi. As for his scholarly pursuits, Liji jishuo canding was his important work in the study of Liji. In the earlier Yuan and Ming Dynasties, all scholars engaging in the Liji studies read Liji jishuo, which was completed in the Yuan Dynasty by Chen Hao. This work, however, not only lacks sophistication but also bases its interpretation on the school of Neo-Confucianism .It was heavily criticized in the academia for its substantial deletion of Zheng Xuan’s commentary and Kong Yingda’s annotation. Later in the Qing Dynasty saw the revival of the study of Liji. Relying on the textual research that rectified the omissions in Chen Hao’s work. It was also carried out by means of philological studies and semasiology. In this regards, Zheng Xuan’s commentary was held in high regards, and references was made from various sources to return Liji to its original form. Therefore, Liji jishuo canding was not only a supplement to Liji jishuo, but also a return to Zheng Xuan, a prevailing fashion in the Liji studies of the Qing Dynasty. This paper concludes the background of study of Liji in the Qing Dynasty, the research interests of Chen Zhen as well as his academic-networking with numbers of renowned scholars. A brief introduction of Liji jishuo canding will be included. How Chen Zhan’s cited Zheng Xuan’s commentary to explain and interpret Liji and what attitude he had towards Zheng’s commentary will also be taken in to account.It also evaluates the merits and faults of Chen Zhan’s citation of Zheng commentary and how valuable Liji jishuo canding is towards the study of Liji in the Qing Dynasty.
