STANFORD, Edward [publisher]. Map of the Seat of War in the Far East. London, Edward Stanford, March 14, 1904.
Large lithographic map, hand-coloured in outline, measuring 83 by 113 cm, linen-backed in 32 segments, folding back into the original cloth folder in 8vo with printed title label; spine of folder renewed; from Manchester Public Libraries with their bookplate inside front cover, gilt-stamp on front cover, lending slip (one stamp of 1941) on the verso of one segment, otherwise very good.
First edition. The inset map shows The Russian Concession on the Liao Tung Peninsula. The transport links (rivers, railways, the Trans-Siberian in particular), are boldly printed. This is probably one of the best - and quite scarce - Russo-Japanese War maps covering the entire region affected by the conflict, from North Korea to just south of Khabarovsk, and Beijing to Vladivostok, including large parts of Mongolia.
