1879 Iwakichi Hayami Wall Map of the World in Hemispheres. WE SELL ONLY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS - NOT REPRODUCTIONS. Title: Ãù±ÃçäÃêà / Eastern Hemisphere / Ãâ¢Ã¸ÃçäÃêà / Western Hemisphere. Description: This is an enormous Meiji 9 or 1876 Japanese double hemisphere world map set by Iwakichi Hayami. Composed of two gigantic panels, each measuring 75 x 62 inches, this map covers the entire world on a hemispherical projection. The left side focuses on the Western Hemisphere, cover from Greenland to Antarctica.

The countries of the Americas are highlighted with major cities and riverways identified. The right side details the Eastern Hemisphere including Africa, Europe, Asia, Indochina, the East Indies, and Australia.

Japan is highlighted in bright red. Some maritime routes and regional boundaries are noted.

Hayami offers a very Japanese worldview superimposed upon an, at least in theory, somewhat modern world map. Note, nonetheless, how some places are diminished and other exaggerated in size to reflect not only their importance to Japan, but also Japan's perspective regarding its own position on the world stage. Korea and China, for example appear disproportionally small when compared to Japan. Most countries are illustrated as a block, with no internal states or divisions noted.

The notable difference is Australia, another area of Japanese interest, which has here been divided into its constituent states. This map was drawn by Iwakichi Hayami and published in Japan by Saikichi OÃÃshima. Size: Printed area measures 75 inches high by 125 inches wide. A few verso repairs and reinforcement along original fold lines, especially at fold intersections.
