St. Petersburg: Slavia, 2009. Sewn pb. This publication of popular prints now held at the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences offers a close look at a phenomenon of Chinese art, printmaking and propaganda of the nineteenth century: so-called export prints consisting of an image of some facet of Chinese everyday life and a lengthy caption commenting on it. Unusual about this catalogue is the origin of the prints: they were commissioned as part of diplomatic reconnaissance by A. F. Popov, who was a Russian diplomat in China in the 1850s and 60s. Series: Unconventional Sources on the History of China during the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911), V. S. Miasnikov, series editor. Item #3021
