A record of some of the sights of late Qing dynasty China. It gives an idea of the resources and energy that were put into creating places that would have been considered beautiful and could be enjoyed by those with some money and leisure. A glimpse into some of the social priorities and also the building and design abilities of that period. A world and a way of life that has since almost vanished, only remnants remain and this book is one of them.
The descriptions of places in the roaming section, are interesting but not exceptional. It’s their relation to the lives of the characters that makes them worthwhile. Parts of this book were quite beautiful, but other parts I didn’t find that compelling.
