N/A. English: Drawing by William Alexander, draughtsman of the Macartney Embassy to China in 1793. A soldier armed with a matchlock gun. At his right side hangs his cartouch-box and on his left, his sword with the point forwards. In the background, there is a military post. A sentinel beats a gong to call out the guard, who are ready to salute a man of rank. Alexander noted an outdated design of the Chinese firearms compared to the European muskets. Image taken from The Costume of China, illustrated in forty-eight coloured engravings, published in London in 1805. circa 1800. William Alexande
