世界萬国日本ヨリ海上里數王城人物圖 (Sekai bankoku nihon yori kaijo risu ojo jinbutsu zu)


More Japanese Maps of the Tokugawa Era can be viewed in this UBC digital library.

“Unlike most of the collections outside Japan, this collection does not contain many government or administrative maps. Its focus is on privately published and travel related maps and guides published in Japan during the Tokugawa or Edo period. There is world coverage, although the majority of maps are of the whole or parts of Japan. A number of prominent Japanese ukiyo-e (woodblock print) artists are represented, among whom are: Hishikawa Moronobu, Miyagawa Chôshun, Shiba Kôkan, Kuwagata Keisai (Shôshin), Katsushika Hokusai, Ando Hiroshige and Hashimoto Sadahide.”
