Notes

Map of the San-On district within the Kwangtung Province and featuring the city of Hong Kong following British occupation in 1841. The boundary of the British colony is shown in Kowloon. This peninsula had been added to the colony of Hong Kong in 1860. Place names are given in both Roman and Chinese scripts.

In 1860 Monsigneur Simeone Volonteri joined the Mission of the Propaganda in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong and while there produced this map.

"The uncertain pronunciation of the Chinese characters is fixed according to Williams's Dictionary".

Later re-issed by the National Library of Australia in 1971 as a facsimile reproduction from the copy held in the Braga Collection of the National Library of Australia, Canberra and entitled: The San On map of Mgr. Volonteri.
