Beautiful map of Japan based on the Kaempfer/Scheuchzer type. In this map Tirion makes a correction to his previous map of Japan by incorporating the more correct northern tip of Honshu and the southern tip of Hokkaido based on Kaempfer's manuscript, or perhaps taken from an inset on Scheuchzer's map.

References: Walter #79/OAG #91.

Wide original margins and lovely color.
