About This Item

(Circa1900).. Large illustrated map of Beijing showing the city in the period following the invasion of the military forces of the Eight National Alliance, old folds, scale not given. Some scattered light foxing particularly at edges, short closed tear at fold lower edge, neat non acidic tape repair short section upper edge wear along folds, and a couple of small, unobtrusive holes with minor image loss. Blocks of text in traditional Chinese right and left upper sections stating each nation's occupied zone, Japanese text title accompanies the English title along the upper section of the map. 63.7 x 56.9cm. Very good overall. A rare and significant large Japanese woodblock map of Peking (Beijing), issued just after the suppression of the Boxer Rebellion. Centred on the Forbidden City, the map depicts Peking following the multinational suppression of the Boxer Rebellion or Yihetuan Movement of 1900. The map was issued to illustrate the areas of occupation associated with each of the powers in the Eight Nation Alliance.

The map gives measurements of the city walls, detailed names of streets and buildings and the boundaries of the inner and outer city, including the forbidden city, are shown with demarcation lines in pink, yellow and blue. The hand coloured eight national flags of the occupation powers are featured at the right and left.

This map is essentially a later edition of 京城内外首善全圖 a map of Beijing issued by the Qing for administrative purposes in the mid-19th century. The Japanese seized the wood blocks during the suppression of the Rebellion and subsequently pulled new impressions, overprinting them additional details including flags and demarcations of areas of the city held by members of the Alliance. Versions are known in French, German, Japanese, and, as with the present example, English. An attractive map of great historical interest. .
