Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782), French cartographer. Compiled over 200 maps. This group of 8 maps is from his most important work Description de la Chine, by P.du Halde and published in 1735. The principal cartographic authority on China during the 18th century. (Tooley)
D'Anville used maps prepared by Jesuit missionaries and commissioned by Emporer-Kanyx, who in 1708-16 ordered a surveying of the country.
Delisle introduces much new information.

In the tradition of Sanson and de L'Isle French school of exact cartography, D'Anville brought exacting scholarship and accuracy to his maps. Never leaving Paris, he managed to amass a vast collection of geographical/historical/ statistical/political materials, in particular from the observations of Jesuit missionaries.
He is said to have produced his first map at age 15, but he gained notoriety only in 1735 for his contribution to du Halde's "Description. De la Chine.".
He quickly followed with the 1737 "Nouvel atlas de la chine", and then the 1740 "Atlas general".

Condition : Folded as issued. With slight marginal browning and very light spotting. Paper slightly browned. All province maps have different sizes, varying from 260x400mm to the largest 450x525mm.
