Les photographies en 2 tomes ont été tirées à 500 exemplaires A l’époque de l’occupation du Palais de Pékin en 1901, l’École des ingénieurs de l’Université de Tôkyô y envoya une commission d’architectes comprenant entre autres, Itô Chûta, Tsuchiya Junichi et Okuyama Tsunegoro, accompagnés du photographe Ogawa Kazumasa.Le rapport de Itô parut en 1903 dans les Rapports scientifiques de l’École des ingénieurs de l’Université impériale de Tôkyô, N° 4 ; le rapport de Tsuchiya parut également dans ce périodique. Les sompteuses photographies d’Ogawa furent édités en 1906 aux frais du Musée impérial de Tôkyô, avec une brève introduction et des notes explicatives sommaires en japonais, chinois et anglais, comprenant 1 fascicule de texte et 172 pl.

First edition limited to 500 copies. 2 volumes bound in one, publisher’s decorative brown silk portfolio with gilt decoration on upper cover titled The Imperial City of Peking China, cloth ties, neatly rebacked, artistic carved wooden case, 172 colloptype plates from photographs by Ogawa, printed on card, captioned and numbered, of which 3 are folding panoramas. Text in three languages (Japanese, Chinese and English).The first complete photographic survey of the Forbidden City and adjacent palaces. Commissioned by Imperial University of Tokyo during the Boxer Rebellion to investigate and record details of the construction, architecture and decorative features of buildings within the Forbidden City and Palace grounds.
Well preserved set of these plates forming the study results of the Commisssion sent by the Imperial University of Tokyo, with financial support from the Imperial Museum, to investigate “the arrangment, construction and decoration of the palace Buildings in the ‘Forbidden City’ and other palace Grounds ”. This took place in 1901 when the Allied Forces occupied and garrisoned Peking after the subjugation of the Boxer rebellion, and the Dowager Empress with Emperor and court had taken refuge in Xian. The two volumes contain superb, large-size collotype plates of exteriors and interiors of various palaces and buildings, both in the Imperial City and in the Forbidden City. This work remains the most detailed and complete on the Peking palaces as far published. Ogawa Kazumasa (1860-1929), the photographer and the editor for the stunning images, is an important figure in the history of Japanese photography. Having studied the dry plate printing process while in Philadelphia and Boston 1883-1884, Ogawa returned to Japan to produce a number of illustrated books on Japanese life and culture. Traveling to China with Professor Chuta Ito and the Imperial University of Tokyo, Ogawa would document the architecture of the Forbidden City and nearby temples in the waning years of the Qing. A companion volume entitled Decoration of Palace Buildings of Peking Pekin was also published the same year.
