Gorgeous illustration of Beijing [google map] from the 19th century.

Don't know much about this one, except that it is noted as being a gift to the Library of Congress by a Mr. Thomas Goodrich in 2006, and that it is described as depicting ”...Eight Banners, Brigade barracks, temples, villages, bridges, mountains, and the Summer Palace.” I would love to know more about this map, if anyone can provide any backstory.
