Item description for The Treasures of Imperial Beijing by Mario Sabattini...

Beijing is a repository of historical relics, its art and architecture providing visitors with a glimpse into it's grand and glorious past. Elegantly presented in a handsome slipcase, this opulent volume takes readers on a memorable journey through the city's most important palaces, temples, and monuments. Hundreds of photographs and reproductions of murals, paintings, statues, and scrolls supplement an insightful text that places these artifacts in a historical context, providing a deeper understanding of the salient traits of each era and the historical figures behind each of the masterpieces illustrated in the book. From the Forbidden City's 17 palaces and unequalled collection of wooden structures to the pavilions, gardens, and extensive grounds of the Summer Palace, readers are transported to a fascinating place and time. Other chapters highlight the Great Wall, the Temple of the Sky, and the imperial temples of Beijing.
Mario Sabattini is the headmaster of Foreign Languages and Literature at the Ca'Foscari University in Venice. He directs the Italian Institute of Culture in Beijing, and is the author of several books on the history of China and the Chinese Empire.
