88. oldal - The gardens of the Mandarins in the city of Ning-po are very pretty and unique ; they contain a choice selection of the ornamental trees and shrubs of China, and generally a considerable number of dwarf trees.

Not only are they trained to represent old trees in miniature, but some are made to resemble the fashionable...
