Handsome and detailed map of the region embellished with three vignettes: a ceremonial barge, Korean dress, and a view of Yedo (Tokyo). The coastline of Korea is considerably less precise than that of Japan, as it was still relatively unknown. Surrounded by geometrically designed borders accented by flowers in the corners. A nice example with uncolored vignettes and borders, as issued.
Good impression and fine outline coloring. A trace of centerfold toning, still very good.
