This is a manuscript chart of Macao and its surroundings extending from Sangchuan (Changchem ou S.t John) on the west to Lamma Island (I. Lema) on the east and the only two places identified on the original drawing. The map clearly has a navigational intent with most of the places named being small islands known for position purposes, some accompanied with latitude and longitude degrees. The Macao Peninsula and Qianshan are the only places where appear buildings. Coloane was missing on the original sketch but was later added in pencil.
Original is a manuscript map, 39 x 50 cm.
