Notes by the uploader

  1. Some images lack a proper description and the location, please help by providing them. The donor of these images, the Peace Palace Library, provides descriptions that might be used here. The resolution of the same images is higher here at Wikimedia Commons.
  2. Identifications of Chinese locations were tabulated in Friederike Ulrichs : Johan Nieuhofs Blick auf China (1655-1657): die Kupferstiche in seinem ....
  3. Concerning the historical accuracy, some images were changed on request of the 17th century printing house, to adapt them to Western taste and make them more "oriental", for instance "Ioesiwoe", Joesiwoe, Hexiwu where palm trees are added in a depicted locality that is far too cold.
