This is a very uncommon map focusing on Korea. The map is filled with information including the Palisade or Wooden Wall that separates Mongolia from Quantong Province. The Sea of Japan is here called Sea of Korea. Decorated with a rococo-style title cartouche.
Issued folded, now flattened with the binding trim at lower right extended to accommodate framing and a small circular paper replacement in the border where there was a binding tear.
