Therefore, many historians in Ming-Qing period paid much attention to do textual criticism on Mingshilu Wang Shizhen was the first historian who made thorough and serious textual studies about Mingshilu. He analyzed almost every compiled Mingshilu in his times from Ming Taizu Shilu to Ming Longqing Shilu in his book Shicheng Kaowu. The achievement of Wang Shizhen on the study of Mingshilu had been the foundation of Qian Qianyi and Pan Chengzhang's textual criticism on Mingshihi while Qian Qianyi and Pan Chengzhang made more penetrating critical studies on Mingshilu.
