Fukuda, Shigejiro: THE MAP OF TOKYO. Tokyo, 1907. Map with colour. 19x12 cm when folded. 51x74 cm. Folding map contained within decorative boards.
Dated Meiji 40 corresponding to 1907. Published by Seikokan Bookshop who obviously catered to the foreign community in, and visitors to, Tokyo. Very detailed. This copy of particular interest for the numerous names (written in ink in the broad blank margins) of expatriates and prominent Japanese residents and their addresses. Includes well-known names such as Conder and Piggott so the map presumably owned by an English-speaking resident of Tokyo who lived there shortly after the map was produced. Rare.
The map with tear down one seam and couple of marginal tears plus some other wear. Priced accordingly.
