    Following the precedent of his grandfather the Qianlong emperor, who ordered seven series of copperplate prints commemorating his victorious military campaigns, the Daoguang emperor ordered a series of ten prints to celebrate the Qing army's victory and second campaign in Kashgar against the rebel Jahangir during the years 1826-1829. Unlike the majority of the Qianlong prints, which were produced in Europe, the Daoguang prints were produced domestically in Beijing. In addition, the print runs for the Daoguang prints were dramatically smaller, with only sixty sets produced. As a result the 1830 prints are far more scarce and rare in the market than the earlier Qianlong editions.
