Eric Henry, “The Submerged History of Yuè,” Sino-Platonic Papers , 176 (May, 2007) 34 Appendix B: Yuè Ch ū nqi ū : Provenance and Textual History The author, Zhào Yè Ⴛዊ , seems to have been born around 40 CE and to have died around 100 CE. He was a native of Guìj ī , served for a while in that region as a minor official whose responsibilities included the reception and care of visiting dignitaries, then threw up everything, went to Sìchu ā n, and studied the Hán Sh ī for about twenty years with one Dù F ŭ Ӂᅨ . When the later died, he returned to Guìj ī and devoted himself to study and writing. The work, in the form that we now possess, consists of 10 juàn , of which the first five are devoted to the affairs of Wú and the second with the affairs of Yuè. This appears to be an abridgement made by Huángf ŭ Z ū n of Zhào Yè’s work, which had twelve juàn . 1. Wú Tàibó Zhuàn
