This exhibition presents the early 17th century maritime heritage of the Ming Dynasty, including unique collections from the Oxford University’s Boldeian Libraries. Among the items on display are the Selden Map of China and the manuscript, Shun Feng Xiang Song (also known as Laud Rutter.)
Most of the objects are displayed to the public in Hong Kong for the first time. It is a unique opportunity to experience these extraordinary tools and resources from ancient mariners.
This exhibition is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Maritime Museum and Oxford University’s Bodleian Libraries.
