The Four Categories of Literature
Yuanchao zheng Mian lu 元朝征緬錄 "The Burma Campaign of the Yuan Dynasty", original name Huang-Yuan zheng Mian lu 皇元征緬錄, is a history of the Mongols' invasion of Myanmar (Burma) written by an unknown author of the Yuan period 元 (1279-1368). The book is to be found in the collection Yuanwenlei (Guochao wenlei 國朝文類), and parts of it are quoted in the statecraft encyclopedia Jingshi dadian 經世大典 from the Yuan period. A great part of the text is identical to the chapter on Myanmar in the official dynastic history Yuanshi 元史, except the parts describing the outcome of the war after 1298. The text is reproduced in the collectanea Shoushange congshu 守山閣叢書, Congshu jicheng chubian 叢書集成初編 and Wanwei biecang 宛委別藏.
