For nearly 30 years before the Qing forces captured Shanhaiguan, Liaoning had been the political center of the early-Qing government. Moreover, Liaoning was the "rising land of the dragon" where the ancestors of Qing emperors were buried, therefore, the imperial court attached great importance to the administration and development of Liaoning.

This title, compiled by Liaoning Provincial Library, is translated from the original Chinese edition, consists of 500-plus photographs and paintings about the organizational system of the Liaoning area, its war relics, religious temples, culture, and education during the Qing Dynasty.
