日本帝国全図. [Nihon Teikoku zenzu].
[Complete Map of the Japanese Empire].

Tokyo. 中村由松. [Nakamura, Yoshimatsu]. Meiji 37 [ 1904]. Stock ID #176322

Colour lithograph map, main map scale 1:1200000 with inset maps in various scales, 80 x 109 cm, time toned paper more obviously browned at folds, small holes caused by insects, more obvious in lower left, but overall still an attractive map.

This map was originally produced and published by Nakamura Yoshimatsu (中村由松/芳松) in Osaka just before Russo-Japanese War. This is the second edition, published in May 1904. It is a beautiful map as minute details on topography and water depths are illustrated in subtle colours. Many place names appear in traditional names, such as Yamato instead of Nara Prefecture. The main map shows Honshu and 7 inset maps show other parts of Japan, including Hokkaido and Kyushu as well as Taiwan, Kuril Islands, Bonin Islands and Ryukyu Islands. Particularly, outer territories, such as Ryukyu, Kuril and Bonin Islands, are drawn in amazing details.
