Woodblock Printed Map of Bancho, Tokyo by Owariya Kiyoshichi
[Japan] Lovely woodblock printed map showing the Bancho area (today near Hanzomon Station and surrounding area). We can see the border gates of Hanzomon, Yotsuya, Ichigaya, and Ushigome at the lower part of the map. Presumably the map had covers but these are not present here.
Edo [Tokyo]. Owariya Kiyoshichi. Dated Kaei (1848-55).
55.3 x 49.8cm.
In very good condition. A small hole at top right in margin (probably occurred when cover removed). A few small worm trails along some folds. Otherwise very good. Nice bleedthrough. nb33070004
