Japanese Maps : [Tōkaidō risūki]

Japanese Maps

<p style='text-align: justify;'> A chart of travelling distances (risūki) on the Tōkaidō highway. The colophon dates it to Tenpō 15 (1844) and reports Fujita Tōemon (based in Fujikawa) as publisher. The colophon also specifies "Tōkaidō" as the object of the chart, but there is no title on the map, and the front cover, where a mounted cover title might have been, is missing. On the back of the cover, there’s a mounted bookplate of Biblioteca Lindesiana (at the base of the bookplate in pencil is the notation: "15/E"). </p>
