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.
