The famous garden was destroyed 144 years ago. A stroll among the broken walls and columns by the lakes and in the woods at the ruins of Yuanmingyuan invariably induces thoughts of the past. The pictures and valuable historical data collected in this book may give readers some ideas of the original glory of this garden-style palace, which was a masterpiece of the art of landscape architecture in China's feudal society. Color Illustrations.
