Title : Corea and Japan..
Map maker : THOMSON, J..
Date : Edinburgh, 1816.
Size : 19.7 x 24.4 inches. / 50.0 x 62.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :A fine large-scale map of Japan and Korea showing an increasingly refined outline to the Japanese islands but still oversized Korean peninsula.
The strait south of Korea, is called "Strait of Korea". Including the islands Argonaut and Dagelet.
The map appeared in Thomson's New General Atlas and became a much-copied model for the European cartography of Japan in the early 19th century.

Maps in the 19th century tended to print two islands on the Sea east of the Korean peninsula. The two islands are both Ulleungdo. This duplication of Ulleungdo was caused by two independent findings of Ulleungdo by Westerners. Ulleungdo was initially found by a French, Lepaute Dagelet, and it was named "Dagelet" in 1787.
An English explorer, James Colnett, also found Ulleungdo and named it "Argonaut" in 1789. Since Dagelet and Colnett assigned different latitude and longitude to "Dagelet" and "Argonaut", maps made by Westerners tended to print two islands in the area. Affected by these Western maps, Japanese map also tended to print Argonaut in addition to Ulleungdo on the eastern sea of Korea.
Condition : Repair of two marginal splits close to center fold and one in center fold. Good condition.
