Articles analyze individual places in China and larger regions in South and Southeast Asia important in the history of China's maritime trade during the Ming period, and look at commodity flows. Articles were written in the 1980s and early 1990s, and vary in length and depth. Subjects include references to Timor in old Chinese records, the northern trade route to the Spice Islands, and Yuan and Early Ming notices on the Kayal area in South India. Other subjects are Chinese coral imports from maritime Asia, transportation of sandalwood from Timor to China and Macao, and China and the trade in cloves. Original pagination is retained.
