The map was drawn by Edw. Sels and engraved by Selmar Siev. There are two elevations and the depths are shown by soundings. The map is very large (About 42 inches square). The map was featured in “SAILING INSTRUCTIONS AND NAUTICAL REMARKS BY THE OFFICERS OF THE LATE U.S. NAVEL EXPEDITION TO JAPAN”.

This publication is rare as far as we know, no copy has appeared at auction in the past 35 years.




Condition : In good condition but the paper is thin and folded many times. Several of the fold joints have been supported on verso with Japan Paper.
A few of the folds that were exposed have minor browning. Also, there have been repairs along the fold in the title at the top left. Overall though, in good stable condition.
