In 1912, over 2,000 years of imperial rule ended as the last emperor of the Qing dynasty abdicated and the Republic of China was born. This beautiful map, which appeared in National Geographic Magazine in October of 1912, is a perfect companion for the maps of China published in 1945, 1964, and 1991. It covers China, Chosen, and Taiwan (Formosa). This version, printed on high-quality, semi-gloss paper, is perfect for framing.

Comments about 1912 China and Its Territories Map:
I love Christian history and have read several books about missionaries and evangelists in China. When reading histories I always like to follow locations on maps. That has been difficult due to the language changes occuring since the nation became communist. This map gives me a better chance of finding locations with the older spelling and pronunciations. Unfortuneately, the number of cities in the most populated areas make the names very closely clustered. I plan to have the map of that area enlarged by photo copier for my own use. I am very happy that such a map exists.
