After the initiation of the National Project for the Compilation of the History of the Qing Dynasty, the director of the compilation committee, Professor Dai Yi, proposed a new framework, having consulted with scholars from home and abroad. This new framework consists of general records, gazettes, biographies, historical charts, and pictorial records. It was indeed an innovative decision to include pictorial records in the compilation of the history of the Qing Dynasty. Because of this, we started to collect true-to-life paintings, old photographs, pictures, and drawings of objects and documents with historical value, both at home in China and from abroad. We compiled some of these pictorial resources into a series entitled A Pictorial Record of the Qing Dynasty.
