Research on the Diving Pearl Boat in Tao Xiang's Tian Gong Kai Wu
Diving and catching pearls in North Bay of China has a long history, which was also recorded in the ancient literature. Tian Gong Kai Wu in the Ming Dynasty summarized the previous literature, and carried out a more comprehensive summary with illustrations. Since the publication of Tian Gong Kai Wu, many versions had been formed in the process of copying. Among them, Tao Xiang's version of Tian Gong Kai Wu was different from the original. This article mainly discusses the rationality of Tao's Diving Pearl Boat, which is based on the comparison of Diving Pearl Boat contained in Tu's Tian Gong Kai Wu. It can be seen that Tao's Diving Pearl Boat has its merits but is still unreasonable on the whole according to the analysis.
