Fine map of the island if Kyushu, together with Tsushima Island with the bay of Nagasaki where the man-made island of Deshima, trading post of the V.O.C. from 1641 onward was established.
One of the few large scale maps, of Japan included in the rare work by Von Siebold. The work is of the greatest rarity as probably no more than 100 copies were published and only a few where printed on large paper.
The famous geographer Mogami Tokunai and Mamiya Rinzo provided Siebold with important information, including maps. Siebold was expelled from Japan in the autumn of 1829 because maps were considered by the authorities as secret.

Von Siebold was born in Wurzburg, in Germany, and worked for the Dutch government as a doctor in Java. In Japan, where Von Siebold arrived in 1823 at the age of 27, he demonstrated his skills in medicine. His reputation allowed him to go beyond Deshima and to buy a house outside Nagasaki.
An opportunity to travel in Japan arose in 1826, when he accompanied a Dutch mission to the Imperial Court at Yedo (Tokyo), typically and illegally taking surveys on the way. Siebold became fluent in Japanese and was permitted to travel and to observe the country, its manners and customs, the results of these travels and extensive researches being embodied in these magnificent town views and other plates in his work Nippon .
Very fine.
