A finely engraved map of the entrance to Canton with Macao (Ma-kau) and the islands on the approach pictured with depth soundings, and an inset "Plan of Quang-Chew Fu commonly called Kanton".

A French Jesuit, Jean-Baptiste Du Halde's work inspired great interest in China among Europeans, and was a ground breaking work in geography. Lower right edge trimmed with reinstated blank margin, otherwise a good example.
