This volume features a wonderful collection of outstanding books, maps, and prints that rank among the most notable printed works produced at the dawn of the era of global trade. From a Chinese translation of the Rosary, to French editions of Confucian classics, and from an epic map of the world to the European Pavilions built by Jesuits on the request of the Qianlong Emperor, "China on Paper" reveals a compelling and largely hidden history of mutual curiosity and fruitful collaboration between East and West.
