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. Following the reuniting of the Lion and the Hindostan at around the 16th July 1793, this is the last stage of the Embassy's voyage to the bay of Peking (now Beijing). This plate comprises a detailed chart below a coastal profile panorama. 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.
