Hand-painted map of Korea by Hayashi Shihei, from Japan, circa 1785. Fold-out map shows the kingdoms outside Japan's boundaries, but with the Kingdom of Joseon (Korea) being an important trading partner, the map was considered dangerous, and consequently banned by the Shogun in 1792. Has original cover boards and title slip. Measures 20'' x 29'' when folded out, and 7'' x 9.5'' when closed. Lightly toned and soiled, overall very good condition.
