    About this book

The revolution of 1911 was a great bourgeois democratic revolution in contemporary
China, having overthrown feudal system and started democratic republic politics in Chinese history. As the capital of the Republic of China and the capital of ten dynasties, Nanjing, which has taken on a new look, has witnessed a history of 100 years. Nanjing is marked by beauties in areas to the south of the Yangtze River and the capital of emperors in the past. Forty-eight scenic spots in Nanjing are cultural brands with a long history. With multiple scenic spots dating back to the late Ming dynasty, Forty-eight scenic spots already formed a spectacular scene under Qianlong reign in Qing dynasty. In the 1930s, Nanjing issued post-cards with photos with forty-eight scenic spots that were soon expanded into sixty in the number, which came into being in 1983 through evaluation and selection failed to keep pace with rapid development of Nanjing. The photo based picture album for tourists includes forty-eight new scenic spots through extensive nomination and selection by vote of Nanjign citizens and finalized by 9 experts in 2005. New scenic spots of this ancient capital not only integrate the royal appeal of northern China and picturesque sceneries of water-borne southern China, but also possesses the exclusive cultural background of the Republic of China. Nanjing is distinctively featured by History and Humanism. For the 100 anniversary of the revolution of 1911, recording the sceneries of present-day Nanjing with photographic art along with written introduction can either console the home-sick and nostalgic feelings of China on both sides of Taiwan Straits or serve as a silent guide for tourism in Nanjing, hence becoming a window for friends all over the world to get to know Nanjing. This is undoubtedly a way commemoration deserving praise approval.
