Description: Antique print China titled 'Cities of the Province of Che-Kyang'. Old map depicting four walled cities of the Chinese Qing dynasty province of Che-Kiang (modern day CHEKIANG): Hang Chew Fu (Hangchow) with the West Lake depicted, Ping-hu hyen, Hu-Chew Fu, Kya-Hing Fu and Ku-Chew 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.
