"Good morning, your Majesty. As you requested, I have procured a chart detailing the approaches to Macao and Hong Kong. I'm certain this chart will be most informative."

Wishing to explore Hong Kong and Macao in the early 1800's? Taking your elder vampire through a flashback to his wild days in Hong Kong? Then this map is a must for you! This is beautiful piece of work suitable for use as a poster map or as a beautiful computer background.

Antique Maps XXIIV - Hong Kong of the 1800's details the harbor of Hong Kong. Intended as a nautical chart (a chart is a map used by sailors to map waterways), this map is potentially one of the most informative maps I have ever seen. It not only details the soundings, and bearings of locations, but also shows the silhouettes of the islands, detailed renderings of the street plan of Macao, illustrations of prominent sites, and much, much, more! This is simply a gorgeous map, on many levels.

Print size of this map is 73 Inches Wide by 49 Inches High.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
