This beautifully engraved and highly detailed map shows the size and breadth of China and includes Taiwan (I. Formose), Korea, and all of Japan. Filled with watershed and topographical detail, the map also locates the Great Wall and scores of towns. A decorative keyboard-style border surrounds the map and Lapie's blind stamp is located to the left of the title.
Original outline color on a bright sheet with faint scattered foxing that is confined to the blank margins.
