  • Jingban tianwen quantu 

    Ma Junliang (1761)
    The Jingban tianwen quantu reflects a Sinocentric world view in which every country but China is relegated to the periphery. At the top is a panel with two side-by-side hemispheric world maps. Korea and the islands of the east Indies are illustrated to the east and south of the China land mass, while a shrunken Europe is squeezed into the upper left corner.
