Abstract

Among all of the historical data given in Hainan Island Chronicles, obviously the charts hold the highest value. The data in those charts provide the very basis for the study of Hainan development in the early period of the ROC, and those charts have been frequently cited by the academic community. A Collection of Local Gazettes of Hainan Province 2004 edition is also the current version. The reliability and correctness of its graph data directly affect the authenticity of historical data and the correctness of research results. By comparing the charts of the two versions, supplemented by a photocopy of A Collection of Guangdong Local Gazettes and Revised Hainan Island Chronicles by Kiwata Ide, the author has found severe problems with the graph data of A Collection of Local Gazettes of Hainan Province 2004 edition.
