In the past my books have been pubished only in text form. Occasionally I have used a few photos for supplementary purposes. But,at thwe request of the Jiangsu Art Publishing House, I have recently completde this book, Old Beijing, which contains both text and pictures. The commissioning editor of the publishing house told me that the theme and style would have no limits set by them. So Idecided that the bood should be composed of three parts.The first part would be a history of Beijing form the "Ji"period of three thousand years before to the late Qing dynasty and the early Republic of China in the life in Beijing during the late Qing and early Repulic period.
