Zhuying ji (Chinese: 珠英集), also known as the Collection of Precious Glories, is a collection of Chinese poetry by Cui Rong, first published in the reign of Wu Zetian (690-705). The book contains poems by Cui Rong (653-706), Li Jiao (644-713), Zhang Yue (677-731), and others. The original work was long thought to be completely lost, however fragments constituting about one-fifth of the original have been found among the Dunhuang manuscripts, with fifty-five poems by thirteen men. One notable feature of this anthology is that Cui Rong arranged the work in descending order of official rank of the included poets; which, among other things, underlines the nature of early Tang poetry as a type of poetry associated with the imperial courts and palaces.
