1785. [MAP - JAPAN] HAYASHI Shihei. EZO NO KUNI ZENZU. This is a "shazu" or handcopied version of the original printed map which was published in Edo, by Suharaya Shihei, in Temmei 5 [1785]. Colored map of Hokkaido, 50 x 92 cm, folds into 17.8 x 12 cm covers with title label. Our copy resembles the 1825 reprint at SOPTR=78&REC=4 from the Beans collection at the UBC library. As we said, though, ours is a copy of the separate publication from 1785 [the Beans 1785.9, p.25]. The printed original is a great rarity and other hand- copied versions like this one, probably done in the mid-19th century, are certainly known. In very nice condition. A handsome and interesting map of this frontier region of Japan. From the collection of Roger Keyes.
