Pair of detailed maps of northern Honshu
Philippe Vandermaelen.

Brussels, 1827. Honshu from just north of Tokyo to the Straits of Tsugaru, with two large texts in French describing the country. Marked on the right sheet is the route of Captain William Robert Broughton (1762-1821), who was sent to the North Pacific to join Vancouver and mapped the coasts of Japan and Korea in 1795. His was the first official encounter between a British ship and the Korean government. Published in the first atlas of the world on the same scale, so some of the more remote areas of the world such as this are shown in unprecedented detail.
