New Peace County: A Chinese Gazetteer of the Hong Kong Region
Peter Y. L. Ng & Hugh D.R. Baker. In 1573 the Guangdong Province county of Dongguan was divided into 2 parts, one of which was named Xinían Xian (New Peace County). Its 600 square miles of territory included all of what is now Hong Kong & the New Terr. The new county was poor, sparsely populated & harassed by marauding bands of pirates & land-based ruffians. This Gazetteer was the combined work of local people & officials.

This book looks at the 1819 ed. of the gazetteer, the last revision of it to be made. The English-language chapters are under 4 headings History, Geog., Econ. & Govít. Old maps have been redrawn.
