A handsome map of Japan with insets of Nagasaki Harbor & Eastern Point of Yeso. Covers the country between Kiousiou and Yeso Islands. Below the title are notes concerning both the homes of the Koubo (Secular Emperor ) at Yedo, and the Dairi (Spiritual Emperor) at Meaco. Keyboard style border.
Pleasant ivory toning. A semi-circular stain at one corner just entering map, still very good.
