Attractive and detailed maps of Canton, Macao and Hong Kong engraved by J. and C. Walker for the Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge - SDUK. The Society began in 1826, the concept of a Scottish lawyer Henry Brougham, conscious of the need for affordable publications to satisfy and educate an expanding British population of increasing wealth, literacy and travel expectations. Over 200 maps and plans were produced, first sold as part works on subscription and from 1844 in a variety of bound atlases. Over the succeeding years new maps were added to the original group including, one of the most interesting of the series showing Hong Kong, in some detail after Capt Belcher's recent survey. Four maps on one plate are of particular relevance to the China trade and show Macao, Hong Kong, Canton and a Sketch of the River From Macao To Canton. As such, one of the earliest available maps of Hong Kong and very scarce.
