Foreigners within The Gates

Foreigners within The Gates




China,oude fotografie

MOSER, M. & MOSER ,Y., Foreigners within The Gates, Chicago 2006. Hardcover 23 x 28 cm. 240 pag. met 150 zwart-wit foto's.
"Only a stone's throw away from the Imperial Palace, the Legation Quarter of Peking stood for more than half a century as 'a city apart' . Surrounded by thick walls, with entry to Chinese forbidden, the Quarter housed several hundred foreigners who lived in a miniature Europe in the heart of the Chinese capital. The Quarter boasted well-built embassies and fancy clubs which mimicked the latest European styles, maintained its own local government and postal service, and was serviced by a surprisingly large collection of banks and commercial establishments. A painful symbol of China's humiliation at the hands of western 'barbarians', the Legation Quarter was repossessed by the Chinese Government after 1949 and all foreigners were evicted. Little remains of the old Quarter today. Foreigners within the Gates reconstructs the story of the Peking Legation Quarter -- the 'little Europe' placed arrogantly in the heart of the Imperial capital -- tracing the Quarter's origins in the 18th century treaties of Tianjin and Peking, through the perilous Siege during the Boxer Rebellion of summer 1900, the rebuilding of the Quarter following th Boxer Settlement, the Japanese occupation of the 1930's, and finally the disappearance of the Quarter following the communist 'liberation'. The book's collection of rare photographs, numerous maps and lively prose provide a dramatic picture of one of the most fascinating encounters between China and the outside world -- inside the capital of the Middle Kingdom itself."

ONLY AVAILABLE AS A SERIES OF 3 VOLUMES.  PRICE(3 parts together): 250,00

CONTENT:
The first comprehensive history of the earliest years of photography in China , combining previously unpublished research with over 150 photographs, many of which are attributed and published here for the first time. Terry Bennett describes the way in which the discovery of photography in China was framed against the tumultuous backdrop of the Opium Wars, the Taiping Rebellion and the opening of numerous treaty ports to foreign trade. From 1842, when the use of a camera was first recorded in China , foreign and Chinese photographers captured the people, places and events of this unsettled period. They were professional portraitists, soldiers and pioneering amateurs, among them: Jules Itier; Pierre Rossier; Lo Yuanyou (the earliest-recorded Chinese commercial photographer); Felix Beato; and Milton Miller. The text includes extensive documentary notes, valuable listings of early stereo-views of China and biographies of more than forty photographers working in China up to 1860. It also introduces important new detail on the life of Felix Beato."

M. Ferenczy & Kincses Károly, Mandarin Ösvérháton[Mandarin on a mule]  Hopp Ferenc Fényképei, Hungary 1999. Softcover 20 x 23 cm. 156 pag. with 137 sepia coloured photo's. Text Hungarian, photo captions and short introduction also in English.

PHOTOGRAPHS:
The catalogue contains besides photo's of Ferenc Hopp and family around 60 photo's of mostly Asia[nearly all made in 1903:China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia. Some photo's of Africa[Camaroun, Liberia, Congo] and the Orient[Egypt, Syria, Palestine] 
CONTENT:
The name of Ferenc Hopp (1833-1919), a wealthy optician, patron of the arts, globe-trotter and art collector, has become known far and wide through the Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts in Budapest. His career, remarkable in the present age, was not particularly unusual in the rapidly modernizing Hungary of the 19th century. But despite his fame, his multifarious activities are little known. For example, few are aware that he was a passionate photographer, and that, as the owner of the optical firm Calderoni and Co., he contributed substantially to the development of photography in Hungary. During his trips round the world he took a large number of photographs, building them up into a collection. In his will he left the overwhelming majority of these to the Hungarian Geographical Society. This part of his estate perished: along with the Society's archive was destroyed in 1944, by a direct hit from a bomb during the siege of Budapest. Fortunately, Ferenc Hopp's art collection, photographs and documents have survived in the villa housing the Museum.
Ferenc Hopp made 5 round-the world trips:
  • 3/09/1882 - 20/08-1883
  • 10/05-24/07 1894
  • 29/04-2/09 1903
  • 03 / 09 1905
  • 07/11/1913 - 25/07/1914

With regard to old Asian photography the catalogue contains 29 photo's of Asia nearly all made in 1903:
China[3]: no.'s 31, 124, 126, 
Siam[1]: no.56,
Japan[9]: no.'s 59, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111
Korea [10]: no's 112, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 120, 121, 122, 123,

ALPHEN, J. Van, Mensen voorbij de Grote Muur. Foto's uit Jehol Oost-mongolie China 1910 -1939, Tentoonstellingscatalogus 1990, Etnografisch Museum Antwerpen, Antwerpen 1990. Softcover, 25 x 29,5 cm.95 blz. 76 foto's. 

CONTENT:
Introduction from page 8 till 17, the following 76 pages, one photo per page.

This exhibition [Antwerp 1990] catalogue contains 76 photo's made in the period 1910-1939 probably by Father R. Verbois, who was a member of the so-called “Scheut” Congregation. The area in which this Belgian Roman Catholic Congregation was active was Inner Mongolia [later on  focus was shifted to Belgian Congo].
The photo's in the catalogue have been printed from black-and-white prints of negatives on glass, that were originally used for educational purposes. 
The introduction introduces the reader to the region, the political situation in China at that time and the role of the missionary. Contemporary reports of missionaries travelling and working there have been used to underline some aspects of the introduction. 
The photo's are more of documentary than artistic value although the quality is quite good. They depict mostly the daily working life of the Chinese inhabitants of the region. This concurs with the fact that christening of the inhabitants was nearly only limited to the Han Chinese.
The descriptions of the photo's are based on the actual descriptions on the glass originals.
