Early Japanese World Map by Kurihara Nobuaki

Woodblock printed Double Hemisphere Map of the World

 

with separate matching descriptive notes page

 

by Kurihara Nobuaki

 

Kaei era (c.1848)

 

Map measures 66cm x 40cm

Descriptive notes page 66cm x 29.5cm

 

The descriptive notes mention that the map was copied from a French map from 1835.

 

In good condition with general age wear. Numerous small repaired wormholes but not so noticeable. Usual folds. Map and descriptive notes page may have been joined at some point as we have seen at least one that was joined. Still an impressive map from a very interesting period in Japanese history.
