Dimensions: 20 x 17 inches (50.8 x 43.18 cm)

This is a tastefully colored decorative map of Japan from the Dutch edition of Kaempfer's "History of Japan." As stated in the title cartouche the map was put together by Johan Caspar Scheuchzer from maps Kaempfer brought back from Japan. This rather scarce map depicts the country divided by province with their names written in both Kanji and Dutch phonetics. The map includes two inserts of areas near northern Japan as well as a diagram of a Japanese compass. On either side of the title cartouche are vignettes of three Japanese gods of fortune Tossitoku Iebis and Daikoku. This is a scarce and lovely example of the first state of the map displaying clean contemporary color throughout.

Condition: Map is in A condition with wide margins and a fresh overall appearance.
