New York: C.S. Hammond & Co., 1913. 7 3/4 x 11. Chromolithograph. Very good condition.
A detailed and very up-to-date map of the Japanese archipelago by one of leading American cartographic firms of the early twentieth century. New York had become the center of American map publishing in the middle of the nineteenth century. Towards the end of that century much of the cartographic industry moved to Chicago and other cities, but the Hammond firm kept New York as an important center of map-making. This map is typical of the company's output, with accurate and clearly presented topographical and political detail.
