The first British Embassy to the Emperor of China, 1792-4, was led by the First Earl Macartney whose comptroller Sir John Barrow, cartographer was later a co-founder of the Royal Geographical Society. The official report by Sir George Staunton, in which this chart appeared, was published in 1797. Three coastal profile panoramas appear on this sheet. Two British merchantmen ride the tide among local boats in the lower view of three, showing the city of Ten-tchoo-foo, taken from the Hindostan, one of the mission's boats. In the upper two scenes there are landfalls of local islands, each of which is named after important persons in the Embassy, Macartney and Gower. 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.
