Notes

A plan of Nagasaki from a Danish edition of the Abbé Prévost’s travel book, the Histoire Generale des Voyages’.

The maps for the Histoire’ were produced by Jacques Nicolas Bellin. They were re-engraved for the Danish edition; this plan was possibly engraved by Jonas Haas, who also engraved the map of Japan.
