Emil Bretschneider became famous among researchers for his valuable contributions to the field of sinology. His versatile approach - he was a physician and botanist as well as a sinologist - and his familiarity with Chinese literature distinguished him from his colleagues, many of whom were unable to read sources firsthand. Combining his abilities in botany and sinology, Bretschneider comprises an extensive history of Chinese plants and how they found their way to Europe.
Emil Wassiljewitsch Bretschneider served as physician to the Russian delegation from 1866 to 1883 in Beijing. This map was intended to illustrate Bretscheider's "History of Botanical Discoveries in China," and is regarded as one of the most important maps of China published at the end of the 19th Century.
