This superior reproduction of the map of "China" was originally published in 1841. This is a very fine example from the fascinating and highly accurate series of maps issued in London between about 1829 and 1850 by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, commonly known as the SDUK.
The Society was formed by the publisher Charles Knight and Henry Brougham, a radical politician and reformer, in March 1828. During its lifetime, the SDUK were extremely active publishing numerous informative and improving works.
