This important set of 4 large-scale Admiralty charts, issued in 1846, shows the Pearl River estuary from Lantau to Guangzhou. They were based on the ground-breaking survey by Daniel Ross in 1815 and the subsequent 1840s surveys of Sir Edward Belcher. Belcher undertook one of the first detailed Admiralty surveys after the seizure of Hong Kong in January 1841.
