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. This map represents the overland journey, by road, from Zhe-Hol in Tartary, through the Great Wall to Pekin (now Beijing) and on by various rivers and canals to Hang-Tchoo-Foo (south of Nanking). There are many fascinating observations on the people, crops and terrain encountered. 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.
