Color: Hand Color
13 x 10 inches

Handsome and detailed steel engraved 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. Geometrically designed borders, accented by flowers in the corners surround the map. A nice example with uncolored vignettes and borders, as issued.
Evenly toned with original outline color.
