The Ming volume first shows a few illustrated works from the early Ming but the majority of the illustrations in this volume date from the Wanli and Tianqi reigns when the Chinese illustrated novel became popular. The popularity of the illustrated novel at this time (late 16th - mid 17th centuries) is demonstrated in the second Qing volume which has an extensive amount of illustration from novels published during the first, Shunzhi, reign of this dynasty.
