A street in Beijing: a diorama | Una via di Pechino: un diorama

Engraving from the book "Viaggio in Cina" by J. Thompson and T. Choutzé, illustrated with 167 engravings. In the book the name is mispelled as Thompson, but the author is the Scottish photographer and traveller John Thomson (1837-1921), while T. Choutzé (朱茨) is the pseudonym of Gabriel Devéria (1844-1899), a French diplomat and interpreter who worked and travelled in China. |
