GBP 35.00
A compilation of over 300 postcards mainly dating from 1900 to 1912 and showing scenery, street life and portraiture from all over China. There is, of course, fascinating photography, but the work is especially nice since both sides of the postcard are shown - picture and message. Accompanying text and captions in Chinese but much in European languages on the postcards themselves. A recommended work.
