Title
Edo.
Description
English: This extraordinary item is a hand colored Edo Period woodcut map of Edo, or Tokyo, Japan. Impressive size and detail. Produced in the mid 19th century Japanese woodcut style, this map is a rare combination of practical and decorative. Ships and waves decorate the harbor and there is no specific directional orientation. All text seems to radiate from the center of the map. Folds into its original sideboards. A must for any serious collection of Japanese cartography.

Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.
