A charming collection of Chinese pictures showing a variety of domestic, court and mythological scenes. This album contains no clues as to the purpose of these delightful images. There is no title or accompanying text and they are as is typical of these types of illustrations unsigned. They may have been produced for the tourist trade or maybe as a gift book?
