Other occasional chips and lacks to extremities of volume 1. No such problems in v.2, just a little abbrasion to wrappers and some occasional browning. Some abbrasion, a little browning, and remains of a sticker and some tape to the binding of the map. The binding of the two volume text-based set is 22.3x14cm, the map itself is 39~46cm. A complete set of books on the customs and culture of the Ryukyu Islands (Okinawa), accompanied by `Ryukyu Shoto Zenzu`, the earliest Western-style map of Okinawa. All three books were written and drawn by Otsuki Fumihiko (1847-1928), a Japanese linguist and researcher who realised the importance of clarifying Japanese borders, and so researched specifically Japan`s outmost islands in his included map. The map is a copperplate engraving.
