Fine Map of Beijing -- English & Chinese Language

A fine and uncommon bilingual map of Beijing with English names transposed over a map in Chinese.

The map is titled "Map of Peking" while the address of the American Express company on the envelope is given as Peiping, China, suggesting a date of between 1928 and the late 1930s.

The map has exceptional detail, with buildings on the street blocks delineated and a large number of them identified with Chinese characters.

OCLC locates only 2 examples.
