Japan: A Cartographic Vision - Lutz Walter

Publisher : Lutz Walter

Japan: A Cartographic Vision is a celebration, in words and pictures, of the spectacular and colourful maps of Japan produced by Europeans. It explores the changing shape of Japan as conceived by Western explores and cartographers, from the crude and fanciful depictions of the early sixteenth century to the first accurate maps published in the mid-nineteenth century.
