|View of the Chinese city Jo-Si-Wo|
Jacques Nicolas Bellin.
Paris, c.1760. A view of Jo Si Wo after Nieuhof, here engraved by Schley for a Dutch edition of the Bellin/Prévost 'Histoire des Voyages'. Nieuhof describes the place: 'The place is small, but well-built, has a wealthy suburb, and drives a great trade. The revenue arising from the custom paid by vessels is very considerable'.
