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. Here are the tracks of the Embassy as it progressed from Turon Bay in Cochin China, past the site of present-day Hong Kong, to the Gulf of Peking (now Beijing). The Hindostan and Lion and her tenders parted company in the fog, and were separated from around the 12th July, 1793 to about the 16th July. 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.
