English Translation for Dao Zhi Yi Lue?


I'm a East Asian/SEAsian historian, and I'm doing research on a topic, does anyone know of an English translation of this account from Yuan Dynasty? The Chinese is obviously on the title (the rough translation is "Accounts of the Island Barbarians") by Wang Dayuan. We have it the library I have access to, but it's in Chinese. Thank you for any information.

Cheese.

Unfortunately I dont think there is a full English translation, but there is an article called Notes on the relations and trade of China with the eastern archipelago and the coast of the Indian Ocean during the fourteenth century by W.W. Rockhill that covers the same topics and uses Wang Dayuan as a primary source (I think its the closest you'll come in English to a translation). Its an older article and should be available for free online at JSTOR or maybe some other site.

No problem. If you have any problem finding the article just give me an email address and I'll send it to you. I have a PDF of it.

Thanks bro. Are you Chinese history scholar btw? I might have future questions/research help I might need to ask.

But I'll check online first. I'm not at home at this computer network won't allow DL's so...

Nah. Just a layman. But there are plenty of knowledgeable people here, so feel free to bring any questions.

Whatever one is talking about it must be in English on the Historum message board.
