1950 Chinese Map of the Summer Palace or Yihe Yuan, Beijing

1706 Veteris Orbis Climata ex Strabo

The Summer Palace compound, which comprises roughly 70,000 square meters, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1998. This spectacular color lithograph view details the entire summer palace and much of the artificial Lake Kunming on which it rests. Chinese tags name most buildings and important locations. Map in the lower right hand quadrant offers a slightly different perspective on the Palace. A rare and extremely attractive map. Issued just after World War II and the 1949 Liberation.
