An important sea chart of the environs of Hong Kong and Macao

APRÈS DE MANNEVILLETTE, Jean Baptiste d'.

Carte d'une partie des Côtes de la Chine et des Isles adjacentes, depuis l'Isle nommée la Pierre Blanche, jusqu'a celle de l'Artimon. Tracée sur les Observations faites en 1759 et 1760, du Senau le Goudelours & du V.au de Londres, en 1754; Par Mr Alexandre Dalrymple.
Paris, c.1775. 350 x 500mm.

An early sea chart of the mouth of the Pearl River and Hong Kong, although with more blank areas than verified detail. Macao and Lantao are both marked, and Hong Kong appears as 'Fanchin Chow' but incomplete, with doubt about whether it was an island.
From the enlarged edition of Mannevillette's 'Le Neptune Oriental', his guide for sailing to the East Indies, based on his own experience and other captains of the Compagnie des Indes.
