Antique Maps of China

Antique maps of China from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Our collection of antique maps of China includes maps dating back to the Ming dynasty. In this period, traditional cartography skills became more refined and different types of maps were published. However, the Kangxi Emperor of the Qing dynasty (1644-1912) realised that the maps lacked accuracy and therefore sponsored a national wide mapping programme. Our antique maps of China reflect these changes in cartography and cover many Chinese regions. 


Antieke Kaarten van China

Antieke kaarten van China van de 16e tot de 20e eeuw. Onze collectie antieke kaarten van China gaat terug naar de Ming-Dynastie. In deze periode ontwikkelde de cartografie sterk, kaarten werden nauwkeuriger en er werden meerdere soorten gepubliceerd. Echter, de Kangxi keizer van de Qing-Dynastie (1644-1912) vond dat de kaarten nog niet nauwkeurig genoeg waren. Hij sponsorde daarom een nationaal cartografie programma. Onze collectie antieke kaarten van China weerspiegelen deze veranderingen in de Chinese cartografie en bestaat uit antieke Chinese kaarten van verschillende regio's.
