Colour lithograph map, a little staining particularly at right margin and in 3 small places in the central section of the map, 39 x 45.5cm. This scarce Japanese map positions Korea in the centre, and partially covers northern Kyushu (Japan), eastern China and southern Russia. Regions in Korea are separately coloured and landmark mountains and cities, such as Seoul, Pyongyang, Beijing, Nanjing are marked with small illustrations and their names. The legend includes railway lines, citadels and cities. Distances from Nagasaki to major cities and distances from Seoul to other Korean cities are separately listed.
Most interestingly, the Battle of Pungdu which occurred in July 1894 on the Yellow Sea is depicted in the map. The battle was fought between China and Japan in July 1894 and was the first naval battle of the Sino-Japanese War. Several battle ships from both sides, such as Yoshino, Naniwa, Akitsu and Jjiyuan can be identified as well as the sinking of Kwang-yi. This map depicts not only the geography, but also the geopolitics of the middle period of the Sino-Japan War, namely Korea, Yellow Sea, Japan and China.
