Chinese Pictures by Isabella Bird

Table of Contents

Publisher: Earnshaw Books


Chinese Pictures is a loving reproduction of the photograph collection first published by the intrepid traveller Isabella Bird in 1900.

The images were all taken by Isabella on her long travels in China in the late 1890s, and provide a unique record of different aspects of China in that era, just before the Boxer Rebellion and its aftermath unleashed far-reaching changes.
