Old map depicting four walled cities of the Chinese Qing dynasty province of Shen-si (modern day SHAANXI): Si-ngan-fu, Chwang-lan, Lan-chew, Kan-chew, Ing-chew and Ku-ywen Chew.  Originates from 'A description of the Empire of China and Chinese-Tartary' by J.B. du Halde. Du Halde's work inspired great interest in China among Europeans, and was a ground breaking work in geography.
