This map has been created exclusively forLa Nao de China by Gonzalo Pavillard, made to order only at Atique.
The purpose of this map is mainly to show the location, name and appearance of each of the Gates and their Towers on all the concentric City Walls of Old Peking: Forbidden City, Imperial City, Inner City (Tartar) and Outer Wall.
On the left a map of Ming-Qing Peking, on the right the earliest extant Photograph of each Gate according to their original location. Though almost all of the Gates and their Towers have since dissapered the names of the locations themselves remain and can be readily identified on a current city map.
Each location name is displayed in Traditional Chinese Characters, Pinyin and their translation in a language of your choosing, Spanish in the copy shown here.
