Interesting map of the northeast coast of Asia depicting Kamschatka, Japan and Korea. It also shows part of what is present-day Alaska. Within the larger map are two insets (one within the other). Each is a different depiction of Kamschatka. Very fine, crisp impression with minor ink offsetting which can easily be erased, and one tiny spot. Ref: Pedley #402
