A detailed map taken from, from Staunton's 'An Authentic Account of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China'.
The map shows the second part of Macartney's return from the summer palace at Chengde, north of Beijing, after meeting the Emperor. He returned overland to Beijing prior to travelling south to Hangzhou (Hang-Tchoo Foo) on the Yangtze River delta, via the 1,000-mile Great Canal of China.
Diplomatically speaking, the mission was an utter failure, as the Emperor proved unwilling to consider any trade concessions, however, on the up-side, the trip yielded Europeans valuable new information on China's social customs and geography.

For much of the second half of the eighteenth century, Britain was anxious to open up more trade with China, as since 1757, international trade was restricted to the Port of Canton.
Macartney, was an Anglo-Irish diplomat, dispatched to China by the then British PM, William Pitt- the-Younger in an effort to try to gain trade concessions.
