This is a very handsome and detailed map of the Jangxi province with many cities named plus watershed and topography. A large and very elaborate Chinoise title cartouche features gold highlights. The map locates the cities of Nan-Tchange-Fou (Nanchang) with Lake Poyang to the northeast, Ouan-ngan-hein, Kouang-Sin, and many more, each identified by its own icon. Blank verso.
Very early impression and fine coloring. Gold leaf highlights to cartouche and compass rose.
