Kyoto. [1872]. Stock ID #160852

Delightful folding hand coloured copper engraved map of the world with coloured flags along the borders. 28 x 36.5cm folds into yellow paper covered card boards, 9 x 14 cm. A little surface loss to paper on covers but otherwise a very good copy of a delightful delicate map. Text below the map gives estimates of the surface area and circumference of the globe, and lists five continents and five oceans. Australia is labelled both as "New Holland" and as "Australia". The seas on both east and west of Japan are marked as "Great Japan Sea". The map is surrounded by a colourful array of national and maritime flags.
