The Paracel Islands in Phủ biên tạp lục

The Phủ biên tạp lục (chữ Hán: 撫邊雜錄 Miscellaneous Chronicles of the Pacified Frontier 1776) is a 6 volume Chinese-language geography by the Vietnamese Confucian scholar and encyclopaedist Lê Quý Đôn.

It is a detailed description of the Nguyễn dynasty's territories in Thuận Hóa and Quảng Nam provinces, and covers outlying areas such as the Spratly Islands and Paracel Islands.[1] The Chinese text was translated into modern Vietnamese quốc ngữ by the modern historian Đào Duy Anh.[2]
