From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A most general map, including China, Chinese Tartary, and Tibet, based on individual maps of the Jesuit fathers. The map gives 1734 as the year, but the modern HKUST publishers say 1737
English: Entire map

"D’Anville’s maps of China were based on a survey of the Chinese empire that was ordered by the emperor in 1708 and carried out by the Chinese, but under the supervision of Jesuit priests resident in China. The detail about the interior of China was far superior to any previous Western map or atlas. D’Anville’s work remained a standard Western source for the geography of China and adjacent regions until well into the 19th century, when it finally was superseded by more accurate maps." — (World Digital Library)

Date 1734, according to the map itself (although the modern publishers say 1737)
