G.E. Morrison, the resident correspondent to Beijing of The Times, travelled in Kansu, Sinkiang and other provinces of Northwest China for half a year (from Jan. to July) in 1910. He took more than one thousand photographs that showed the places, people and the progress of the Reform Movement of Qing Court during his journey. He then sorted and completed several albums totally in 658 photographs with brief captions. This book was published just on the basis of his albums. The book reflected the true features of West China. The readers will understand the situation of geography and climate of Northwest China, the existence of different kinds of minority nationalities, achievement of the Reform Movement, e.g. the Provincial Assemblies, New Army and schools in western style, etc. and the life of the missionaries in the localities. The book shows the vital and rich image materials for understanding and studying the modern history and the social development of China.
1910年,莫理循已经是世界知名的《泰晤士报》驻中国记者了。当时发行多少份《泰晤士报》,就有多少人知道这位"北京的莫理循"、"中国的莫理循"。这年,他进行了为时半年的中国西部考察,途经河南、陕西、甘肃、新疆等省。在考察途中,他采访了大量的当地居民、官府、军队和名人,拍摄了大量的照片,并写了12篇报道,在《泰晤士报》上连载,为西方世界了解中国西部的政治、经济、军事、风情、文化开启了一扇窗口,引起轰动。两年后莫理循被新生的民国政府聘为袁世凯政治顾问,连续为四任总统服务,直至去世。
本书收录莫理循此行拍摄并按日期编辑的照片约六百张,配以中英文对照文字说明
