Tientsin-Peiping. Peiyang Press. 1936. Tenth Printing 1948. Color lithograph pictorial / pictographid map, 31 3/4 x 28 inches (81 x 71 cm) on sheet 34 1/4 x 29 1/2 inches. Originally folded with a 3 inch split along upper horizontal fold, now archivally mounted on linen, very good condition. COMPLETE WITH paper slipcase with decorative cover title (light wear) 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, booklet (very good condition) 7 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches, and one-fold paper business card for the Peiyang Press. This highly decorative and sought-after map by Frank Dorn was published in several editions, all with a copyright date of 1936 on the map. The slipcase for this copy identifies it as the Tenth Printing - May 1948. The decorative border includes a history of the city to 1936, and at lower left and right a wedding and a funeral procession. The map is full of pictographs of the city, its buildings and its people, with a light-hearted and fond touch. Of particular interest is the pictorial business card of the Press, advertising in the centrefold the Frank Dorn map and "Artistic Photos of Peiping" by W.F. Yien. Copies of the first and third editions (with dating of 1936) are listed at various WorldCat libraries, but we have been unable to find a record of the 1948 edition. A stunning map, well documented with its accompanying pieces, presented here archivally mounted on linen and ready to be displayed....
