    About this book

This picture album contains almost all aspects in Old China. They include royal politics, military and foreign affairs, national economy and trade, national costumes, religion and urban sight seeing, in addition to landscape, communications, natural disaster relief, culture, education and public health, as well as various figures, we try to depict a full picture of Old China through the photos. To get rid of repeating the same topics with many picture albums specializing in modern and contemporary Chinese history, the Chinese revolutionary history, the PLA war history, the Revolution of 1911 and the Resistant War Against Japan, we part reluctantly with what we treasure and follow the theme of this picture album.
The photos we select here have a large span in time and space the snowcapped mountains and black rivers in the north, the end of the earth in the south, the yellow Loess Plateau in the west and the vast seas and islands in the east. Nevertheless, it is a pity that we have limited choice from materials left behind to display life south-western and northwestern Old China densely populated with minority people because it was very closed in these areas at that time; Time spans from 1869 to 1949, which we lay stress on the period through 1890 and 1949.
