一九三一年,冒广生鹤亭(一八七三一九五九)先生在广州,见到雍正时云间赵骏烈刻的《后山集》。赵刻《后山集》中诗的部分是根据诗体编排的,按五古、七古、五律、七律、五绝、七绝的顺序,共八卷,六百七十九首。冒先生在封面上题了以下的话:“行箧无任渊注本,粗读一过,尚拟检宋人诸集及地志说部,为渊补注。炳烛余年,或恐徒成结想,然书成自是不朽之业也。疚齐壬申八月朔题。”

雍正间有嘉善陈唐刻本,即魏衍本,无注。衍所未收,分体为逸诗,马暾本已全载。别下齐《斠补隅录》有《陈后山集》一种,乃以旧钞本、任注本、毛钞本校明本。并传录何义门校语。兹一一迻写书眉。三月廿四日慕园。
上面所记的三月当是一九三二年。前一则题记中所说的马暾本,也就是后一则题记中所称的明刻本。
别下齐《斠补隅录》所载的就是何焯(义门)的校语。
