City of Nanking - CHINA] - - 1840. [1277035]
Liverpool Jabez Vale n.d. circa 1840 - Broadside (31 x 29.5 cm. approx), printed in blue ink with a large pictorial vignette surrounded by an ornamental border. Rare Liverpool printed broadside. The text consists of a quote from Lord Byron followed by a nineteen-line text praising the city and giving details of its topography and features of interest. Nanking porcelain was a major export item and the city would have been of great interest to people in the West. The blue on white of the broadside presumably reflects the distinctive blue-and-white porcelain itself.
