Most of people have seen the photos of Sun Yat-sen, Huang Xing, Qiu Jin (and check the Qiu Jing Project), and many other revolutionists when studying the 1911 Revolution. Now Princeton University Library provides another way to look into this critical point of Chinese modern history. Through 31 poster-like block prints, we can nee the struggle between the revolutionists and Manchu government, the contemporary viewpoints, the forms of media, and the issue of “modernity”.
Most of them are propaganda prints that side with revolutionist. One of them shows the foreign relations of China in the form of caricature map. (BibliOdyssey has more detailed discussion on this map)
