Following the trail, we go to the Bao family village and see the villagers act a Ming murder story. Like many authoritarian states, the Ming were obsessive about architecture. We see the giant fortifications of the Great Wall, the ritual enclaves of the Forbidden City in Beijing and travel with bargeman Mr Hu down the Grand Canal, China's great artery of commerce right up to the present day.

Erotic Colour Prints of the Ming Period: With an Essay on Chinese Sex Life from the Han to the Ching Dynasty, B.C. 206-A.D. 1644 (Sinica Leidensia, V. 62) by Robert Hans Van Gulik
English | Oct. 2003 | ISBN: 9004136649 | 329 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

The publication in 1951 of Robert Hans van Gulik’s Erotic Colour Prints of the Ming Period created a stir in the Chinese art community. It was privately published in only fifty copies, which were sent as gifts to selected libraries and museums worldwide. (A list of those outside the Far East is Appendix II to the same author’s Sexual Life in Ancient China.) The copies were accompanied by a letter advising that in order to keep away “sensation-seekers and peeping Toms,” the books were to be made accessible only to “a limited number of serious scholars in the field, for purposes of research.”
