First Western edition. Octavo (9 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches; 248 x 158 mm.). [2], vi, [2], 288 pp. With a large quarto album (12 9/16 x 9 3/4 inches; 320 x 248 mm.) complete with a printed title-page and seven engraved plates, five of which are hand-colored folding maps. Contemporary quarter brown morocco over marbled papers, spine stamped and lettered in gilt in compartments, top edges gilt. Album with marbled endpapers, octavo with uncut fore-edge. Corners bumped on both; light browning to octavo. Minor splits along folds of some of the maps. Overall a very good copy with clean, bright maps. First written in Japanese and rendered in Chinese characters in 1785, this is the first Western edition of Rinsifee's San kokf tsou ran to set, or "Illustrated Survey of Three Kingdoms," edited and translated into French by German Orientalist Julius von Klaproth. Although certainly an able interpretation and impressive work of scholarship, this edition is most extraordinary for its large quarto album, which includes five magnificent hand-colored, engraved maps: "Carte de Iles Inhabites ou Mou Nin Sima"; "Carte de L'Ile de Ieso"; "Carte des Trois Royaumes"; "Carte des Iles Riou Kiou"; and "Carte des Huit Provinces du Tchao Sian." All of the maps are folding; the largest folds out to 21 1/4 x 28 1/2 inches, or 540 x 725 mm. Published in Edo, Japan at the end of the eighteenth-century, San kokf tsou ran to sets was written by Hayashi Shihei (1738-1793), a Japanese military stragetist, explorer, and writer also known as Rinsifee. In this book, Rinisfee recounts an exploratory survey of the geography of the regions that were then the frontiers of Japan, including Korea, Hokkaido, and the Ryukyu Islands, and provides descriptions of the inhabitants, including the Ainu. Anticipating European infiltration of Japan, in later works Rinisfee would advocate for improved defenses along Japanese frontiers and a stronger maritime presence. German Orientalist and explorer Julius von Klaproth (1783-1835) published several dozen translations during his lifetime but is probably best known for his 1823 work Asia polyglotta nebst Sprachatlas, one of the first linguistic surveys of Oriental languages.
