Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Bunken Edo oezu. [Tokyo].
Map maker : SUHARAYA MOHE.
Date : Edo, ca. 1803.
Size : 63.0 x 76.4 inches. / 160.0 x 194.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Based on map by Ochikochi Doin. Oriented with north to the right. An extraordinary wood block-printed town-plan now-a-day Tokyo, and a fine example of Edo cartography. The present map is exceptionally detailed with accurate delineations of daimyo residences, temples, shops, private properties, fields, and much more.
As is true with all maps of Edo from the Tokugawa period, the site of the Shogunal Castle (located in the center of the map) is left blank -- due in part to security concerns, although this feature clearly enhanced the Emperor's mystique. The large legend includes information on tides, pilgrimage routes, daimyo residences, star constellations, distances from Nihonbashi to various places in the City, lucky and unlucky days, and more.
The first map to bear the above title was published by Suwara Jiemon in 1727: for obvious reasons, the map was revised regularly. The first Kanamaru edition dates from 1778, and it too was revised regularly.
Edo zu somokuroku / Iwata Hoju. p. 102.
Condition : [Large Map Showing the Divisions / Properties of Greater Edo]. Large folding map, engraved in wood and printed in colour. Minor repairs to folds, but generally in very good condition.
