A lovely map of Japan and Korea showing the discoveries of Broughton and Krusenstern who traveled in the region in 1796-97 and 1805-11, respectively. In Japan, Kyrushu, Shikoku, and Awajishima are significantly more correct than earlier maps. Nicely detailed with regions delineated, it shows towns, roads, rivers, lakes and mountains.
Original color with light toning, a few spots of foxing, an archivally repaired tear that enters less than 1" into image at bottom, and an unrepaired centerfold separation that enters 0.5" into image at top.
