This charming map shows China, Korea (Kaoli Koue ou Royaume de Coree), and Japan. Political divisions, towns and cities, rivers, and mountains are located in China and Korea, and the Great Wall of China is depicted. There are no place names in Japan, just topographical detail. The decorative title cartouche at bottom right features flags and weaponry. Engraved by Mathieu.
A nice impression with a narrow, but adequate, bottom margin.
