The Japan Railway Directory with General Appendixes Compiled and published by K. Zaitsu
Very scarce folding map in original boards showing the various railway lines in Japan along with distances between places. Smaller inset railway maps of Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiogo [Hyogo] & Kobe, Hakodate, Nagasaki and Niigata. Zaitsu's given name is difficult to read but appears to be Kenzaburo though we can find no reference to him. Appears to be unrecorded. Unclear whether the 'General Appendixes' are the distance tables on the map or something else. Nothing appears to be missing or removed. Printed on very fine but strong paper.
Nunobiki, Kobe. K. Zaitsu. 1890.
Map measures 41.7 x 53cm (10.9 x 16.6cm when folded).
Covers stained. Map itself is in very good condition. Minor age wear and darkening.
