- Curator's comments
- Plate 2 is often titled in modern literature: The camp [set up] at Gadan-Ola is raided (On force le camp [établi] à Gadan-ola). None of the plates in the original edition was ever lettered with a title.
This print is from an incomplete BM set (fifteen only, 1932,0715.46 to 59, including 48*) of the sixteen plates known as 'Victoires et Conquêtes de l'Empereur de la Chine' commemorating the Qianlong Emperor's victories in Central Asia from 1755 to1759. (For a complete set see 1848,0205, 517 to 532).
