Superb 1669 Map from Osaka to Edo & Nagasaki to Osaka by Arnoldus Montanus

De LAND REYSE van OSACCA tot IEDO. De WATER REYSE van NANGASACQUI tot OSACCA

 

This map follows the Tokaido road from Osaka to Tokyo (Edo/Yedo/Iedo). The map is from a richly illustrated travel journal from one of the Dutch trade delegations to the Emperor of China. The map was drawn by Arnoldus Montanus, who described events and stories from members of the expedition. Beautifully hand-coloured, copper engraved map.

 

The map follows the Tokaido in almost perfect order. The only stops not shown appear to be No. 19 Fuchu and No. 57 Moriguchi in Osaka. The identifiable place names on the Tokaido include:
