Description

Rare regional map of eastern China, published by the Lyon (France) Chamber of Commerce in connection with its attempts to expand trade with China.

The map is one of at least 3 maps in a set prepared by Erhard Freres in Paris, published in conjunction with a commercial mission undertaken by the city of Lyon, France to explore commercial opportunities in China.

At the left, the map includes the source map utlized (Bretschneider's map of China) and other sources.

The map's primary focus (in red) appears to be the various minerals and agricultural products in the region, with a route in red of the mission.
