A beautiful c. 1786 manuscript map of Korea prepared by Hayashi Shihei. This map was drawn to illustrate Shihei's Sangoku Tsuran Zusetsu (Illustrated General Survey of the Three Countries). It covers all of Korea as well as the adjacent islands (including the disputed Dokdo). The book describes Joseon Korea, the Ryukyu Kingdom, and Hokkaido. It was one of the first Japanese works to relate Japan to its neighbors and as such was banned by the Edo government in 1792. An example of this work eventually found its way to Europe, where it was published in by Julius Klaproth (1783-1835). The present example is the pre-Klaproth Japanese manuscript issue.
