Antique Maps of China

Antique Maps of China.

Based on the collections in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) Library, this resource “includes more than 230 maps, charts, pictures, books and atlases. It represents almost all samples of China maps produced by European cartographers from the 16th to 19th centuries. This cartographic archive vividly records the long history of cross-cultural exchanges between China and the West” (HKUST Library).
