Block Prints of the Chinese Revolution

Block Prints of the Chinese Revolution at Princeton University Library Digital Collections. "...A collection of 30 poster-like block prints of the 1911 Chinese Revolution given to Princeton University East Asian Library by Donald Roberts, class of 1909. The collection is useful for investigations into the visual portrayal of the struggle of Han Chinese versus the Manchus during the 1911 overthrow of the Qing Empire. Issues of 'modernity' and 'nation' are easily visible in the prints."
