This map of China, Korea and Japan only includes northern China, extending south as far as Nanjing (just north of Shanghai). Numerous cities are spread throughout China, however considerably fewer are shown in Korea and Japan reflecting the lack of knowledge of these regions in the late 18th century. The Great Wall of China is also depicted. Engraved by Scattaglia.
