"The Original Wikipedia: 18th Century Chinese Emperor Qianlong's Siku Quanshu Project"
Guest expert : Susan Lahey, MA, ISA CAPP
Moderator: Brian Kathenes
In 1772, Emperor Qianlong of China, a prolific poet, major art patron, and insatiable collector, ordered the largest encyclopedic compilation of books in Chinese history. Within 10 years, a team of more than 350 scholars and hundreds of editors had compiled 36,381 volumes (2.3 million pages) of the Siku Quanshu. Also known as the Complete Library in Four Sections only seven copies were made. Four of which survive today in Chinese libraries. Learn about this "wikipedia" of Chinese literature, history, philosophy, and classic texts. In addition learn about the remarkable Qing dynasty and the reign of Emperor Qianlong.
