Description: Antique print China titled 'Cities of the Province of Hu-Quang'. Old map depicting four walled cities of the Chinese Qing dynasty province of Hu-Quang (modern day HUNAN and part of surrounding provinces): Vu-Chang-Fu, Yong-Chew-Fu, Whang-Chew-Fu and Syang-Yang-Fu. Originates from 'A description of the Empire of China and Chinese-Tartary' by by J.B. du Halde. Du Halde's work inspired great interest in China among Europeans, and was a ground breaking work in geography.
