Description


The last Emperor of China (1906–1967), the twelfth and final ruler of the Qing Dynasty, who reigned from 1908 until his abdication on February 12, 1912. Very scarce vintage matte-finish 7 x 8.75 photo of a young Puyi in military dress, signed vertically in black ink in Chinese. In very good condition, with mild rippling to borders, a few creases, a trivial brush to last character of signature, and mounting remnants to reverse. A very uncommon signed portrait from the ruler who lived through one of the most tumultuous periods of Chinese and world history. RR Auction COA.
