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.
