On a full folio sheet with English text, published by M Carey & Son. In addition to the 15 provinces of China, the map shows the Empire of Japan, Korea, Formosa & the "Lekeyo Isles". A chronological sketch of the history of China is included in the surrounding text. Information of Japan is very sketchy, owing to the fact that Europeans had been banished in the 17th century and the empire was totally closed to the outside world. Minor toning of fold, else fine.
