Caption: Canton Harbour with sailing ships and junk sailboats, 17th century artwork. Canton, the former name of Guangzhou, was one of the main trading routes between China and Europe. This is an engraving from a book by the Dutch writer and explorer Johan Nieuhof (1618-1672). The book was titled An embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces to the Grand Tartar Cham, Emperor of China, and told of Nieuhof's travels to India and China. This artwork is from the English translation, published in 1669.
