[Japan]. No publisher. (circa 1870). Stock ID #176260

Coloured folding map, 27 x 36cm, folds into 9 x 6cm, card cover with paper title label, some light foxing and wear but still a delightful little map.

This is a fascinating small map of the world including many place names each printed in minute characters. Appears to date from around 1870, as the North German Confederation is depicted. The unknown great south land is shown across the foot of the map.

Over 100 flags surround the map, including such varied examples as Texas (with a thirteen-striped flag), Hawaii (listed as the Sandwich Islands), New Zealand (with the United Tribes flag), Congress Poland, Hamburg, Buenos Aires and Valparaiso. Distances from London in nautical miles and special produce of various countries are listed along the bottom. Legends include topographical features.
