About this Source

We present here a variety of texts and tools for better understanding the Ming Shi-lu, and the conventions we have used to translate the text and present this material in the Web format.

Please note that this project is still in an early stage of development, and we anticipate adding material and making improvements over the next few months. In particular we are working on representing non-standard Chinese characters, and improving aspects of the search interface.
