Map of the journey of Joan Nieuhoff from Canton to Peking, taken from the Atlas van der Hagen, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, Part 4.
A trade delegation from the Dutch East India Company visited Peking between 1655 and 1658, with the aim of establishing trade relations with China. Among the delegation was the Amsterdam-based globetrotter, Johan Nieuhoff. On his return he published his experiences in the form of a richly illustrated travel journal. This map, depicting the route taken by the trade delegation on its travels through China, was also included in the journal.
