Korea Chosen Environs of Keishu ancient temples 1913 scarce detailed Japan mapBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
Environs of Keishu
(Korea Chosen China- Asia)
Issued 1913, Tokyo Japan by the Imperial Japanese Railway
Very detailed and quite scarce early 20th century folding topographical map. Color lithographed on a thin bond-type paper.
Very interesting details! Numerous "ancient temples" shown with symbols, several mountains, Nanzan castle, five Royal Tombs, terrain, distance scale, etc. Small coastal around Mt. Toganzan inset at lower right. Lovely delicate color printing technique of the highest order.
As originally issued long ago on thin paper, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint. The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, there could be a small minor archival tape repair on the back, etc. but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine it closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
An urban cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 7 5/8" H x 5 " W. - The narrow blank margin at lower right is as issued by the publisher to facilitate folding.
Original fold-lines as issued- map will be shipped folded as issued.
