Title: Lingchi photographs replicated in mass media
Information: Fu-zhu-li's execution by lingchi was widely diffused by media: examples of the replication of three shots as a book cover by Carpeaux (see covers), as illustration by Carpeaux and Matignon, and as postcards in the serials of 12 numbered "Supplices chinois", published in Tianjin by a mysterious "Lieou-sseu" (very likely 六四, that is the 4th of June?).
