A very nice lot of maps related to Asia. Each map is surrounded by Colton's decorative strapwork border. The collection includes the titles "Asia", "Turkey in Asia", "Persia Arabia &c.", "China", "Japan Nippon, Kiusiu, Sikok, Yesso and the Japanese Kuriles", and "Hindostan or British India." Sizes vary slightly.
All with excellent impressions, fine original coloring and wide margins. All very good to fine except the India sheet, which has a little staining along right border and a light stain at top margin.
