J. B. Du Halde

This is a Facsimile PDF. It has 738 pages and was published in 1738.


This is Volume 1 of 2. 'A description of the empire of China and Chinese-Tartary: together with the kingdoms of Korea, and Tibet: containing the geography and history (natural as well as civil) of those countries. Enrich'd with general and particular maps, and adorned with a great number of cuts.' This book is quite large in size (123MB), but contains a wealth of information, so well worth downloading if you are able.
