The first British Embassy to the Emperor of China, 1792-4, was led by the First Earl Macartney whose comptroller cartographer Sir John Barrow, was later a co-founder of the Royal Geographical Society. The official report by Sir George Staunton, in which this map appeared, was published in 1797. This land-locked section of the Embassy was mapped by H.W. Parish of the Royal Artillery and shows the White River route in 1793 from the coast to Peking and the road route thereon to "Ambassadors Palace." The purposes of the Embassy were to establish, by negotiation with the Emperor, a British trading post and a permanent embassy, at the same time easing restrictions on Anglo-Chinese trade.
