Fukutomi Seisui

`Chikyu Zenzu` [`Map of the World`],

60 x 34.5 cm. By Fukutomi Seisui. 1 v., complete. A Meiji period
copperplate engraving, hand-coloured, of popular sea routes -
including Pompeii to Hong Kong and San Francisco to Melbourne -
extremely rare as during the Meiji period and from long before that
all maps in Japan had been printed using woodblocks. Alaska is still
shown as part of Russia. One of the authors, Fukutomi Masatoshi,
a journalist, had many of his reports banned by the Japanese
government because of their close detailing of the Russio-Japanese
war. Circa Meiji 5-20s [1870-80s]. A very rare and small folding
map. No records in OCLC.
