Описание в каталоге

“Imperial China gained political control of Taiwan in 1683, when it seized the island from the forces of the naval warrior and Ming loyalist Koxinga (Zheng Chengdong, 1624-1662). The Qing made Taiwan a prefecture (fu) under the jurisdiction of Fujian province and organized it into three districts (xian): Taiwan, Fengshan and Zhuluo. The title slip of the cover of this Complete Map of the Geography of Taiwan Prefecture of the Great Qing-State records that the work was “submitted to the general headquarters of Min [Fuijan] Province in the third year of the Daoguang [reign],” or 1823. Read from right to left across twenty continuously joined pages, the map functions as a gazetteer of the prefecture. Beginning in the north of the island, it traces the west coast to the south... Mountainous areas are rendered in the heavy mineral pigments of the blue-and-green style that first found favour at the Chinese court in the Tang dynasty. Coastal plains are outlined in ink and partly coloured with light washes. Inscriptions outlined in red and simplified pictorial rendering structures and groups of buildings identify major settlements, governmental institutions, temples and military garrisons. Winding trails, also outlined in red, connect villages and towns to each other" (All Under Heaven).
