此例中国军事手稿地图,绘制了扬子江的尾端,包括镇江,常州,苏州和上海。图上绘有数以千计的带有红旗的房子,全部标有名称。县以红色圈出并以红色阴影突出。在地图中心的最大的红色方块中即是苏州府及许多其他行政单位。军营均用红色边框标出,例如“苏州营”便标示在苏州府的正下方。左下角为此例总图,绘制于网格,左侧标有“每方二十里”,约为110000米。

 

地图上三个相同的红色印章是这份地图权威性和真实性的标志,且能揭示此地图背后的历史。 印章内容从右到左为: “英国会带常胜军关防”。“关防”代表此印为军事用。此印中的“常胜军”是最关键的信息,常胜军指清朝末年为对抗内战叛乱分子“太平天国”,清官、商出资与英法等外国军官,中国、南洋等地区佣兵组成的武装。

该地图极为罕见。目前我们只追踪到此例一例。

USED BY THE "EVER-VICTORIOUS ARMY" OF THE QING DYNASTY

 

Author : ANONYMOUS

Title: [Every-Victorious Army military map]

Publication: [Shanghai], c1862

Description: Manuscript military map.

Dimension: 1019 by 1600 mm

Price£120,000.00

 

A Chinese military manuscript map depicting the mouth of the Yangzi River扬子江, showing the cities Zhenjiang镇江, Changzhou常州, Suzhou苏州, and Shanghai上海. Thousands of houses with red flags are shown, with the names of military units written in Chinese. Mountains are pictorially depicted and shaded in green. Most prominently marked are the prefectures, which are emphatically circled and shaded in red. In particular, the Suzhou prefecture and many other administrative units are conspicuously shown in the largest square at the centre of the map.

 

The three identical red seals on the map stand as signs of authority and authenticity, as well as indicating the history and function of the map. The characters in the seal read vertically from right to left: Yingguo hui dai changshengjun guanfang “英国会带常胜军关防” (the seal of the Ever Victorious Army under the British command). The final two characters (Guanfang 关防, literal meaning border control) refer to a type of seal that was unique to military use. The most critical information contained on the map lies in the preceding three characters: changshengjun “常胜军”. They refer to The Ever Victorious Army, formed in the late Qing dynasty to fight against the rebels of the civil war, known as the Taiping Rebellion.
