[Manshū Rōshia kyōkaizu]


Cover attached. Reproduced in: Hoppō Ryōdo, pl. 44. Date and name of publisher appear on the wrapper, which is missing from the UBC copy. The Russian areas have been derived from a chart, with Russian fortresses founded in Kamchatka 1735-1752, and Russian names well rendered in Kana characters; southern Sakhalin, the Kuriles, Hokkaido and northern Japan are from Japanese sources, although Mamiya Rinso's discoveries of 1808-1809 do not appear. Karafuto is shown as a peninsula, and Sakhalin as an island. Cited in: WSN; 232
