(Asia, Qing Empire, China, Japan, Edo Period, Tokugawa Shogunate, Korea).
Issued 1865, Edinburgh & London by Wm. Blackwood for K. Johnston.
Fine oversize mid 19th century engraved map with original outline hand color. A nice large map of the era.
From an uncommon atlas, a monumental folio production which was quite expensive in its day and hence had a relatively small circulation compared to smaller format atlases.
Well preserved, clean, nice looking example with pleasing age patina. 2" split at bottom centerfold repaired and slightly visible in the blank margin. Nice looking map worthy of display or gift giving.
Original center fold as issued. Printed on heavy thick paper, in a tube over 8 ounces, thus international shipping will be more than typical as seen in listing details.
Sheet Measures c. 19 1/2" H x 24" W.
Engraved Area Measures c. 17 1/4" H x 22 1/2" .
