    About this book

Yuanmingyuan (Garden of Perfect Splendour) is renowned for its fabled charm and association with modern Chinese history. Extolled as 'Garden of Gardens' and 'Versailles in the East', it was an imperial summer resort painstakingly built and repeatedly expanded under the personal supervision of the five emperors of the Qing dynasty. The skill and sophistication of this historic site, however, did not escape the destruction inflicted upon it and China generally by the West. In October 1860 Anglo-French forces sacked and looted Yuanmingyuan and reduced most of it to rubble. This album contains a collection of over 100 pictures of the garden. Intermixed with modern images are illustrations and drawings of what Yuanmingyuan once was.
