Description :Important map of Fujian Province, showing the east coast of China and the west coast of Taiwan.It shows that for the Manchu Qing, only the western half of Formosa was considered part of the Province of Fujian.

The longitude makes Beijing the Prime Meridian.

From the Nouvelle Atlas de la Chine, published by French cartographer Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697–1782).
With the western coast of Taiwan.
Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782) was a French cartographer and compiled over 200 maps. This map is from his most important work Nouvel Atlas de la Chine, published in The Hague 1737.
The principal cartographic authority on China during the 18th century. D'Anville used maps prepared by Jesuit missionaries and commissioned by Emporer-Kanyx, who in 1708-1716 ordered a surveying of the country. This map is the first accurate cartographic depiction of this area available in the western world.
