From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The History of Ming (Chinese: 明史; Pinyin: Míng Shǐ) is one of the official Chinese historical works known as the Twenty-Four Histories of China. It consists of 332 volumes and covers the history of Ming Dynasty from 1368 to 1644, which was written by a number of officials commissioned by the court of Qing Dynasty, with the lead editor Zhang Tingyu. The compilation started in the era of Shunzhi Emperor and completed in 1739 in the era of Qianlong Emperor, though most of the volumes were written in the era of Kangxi Emperor.
