NAKAMURA KISEN, INOUE SEIJI & YOKOYAMA KEI. - [Manga Ryoko - Nihonzenzu ... ].

[Tokyo c1930?]. Ten colour printed broadside maps, each 55x77cm, bound together with a hand lettered front wrapper. Stitching broken, last map loose; there are tears and old, neat enough, repairs. Not bad. ¶ Nakamura, Inoue and Yokoyama collaborated on a series of these manga maps of Japan, likely thirteen altogether. I have had a couple of these separately and wondered whether they fit together to make a giant romp round Japan. I still don't know but now I know why I have seen many single maps with the right edge oddly trimmed: it was obviously a thing to bind them like this. I've been too lazy to work out which areas are here but I did recognise the Fukushima map, something none of us will see repeated: a fun tourist map of the Fukushima and Miyagi areas.
