14 Konyo Bankoku Zenzu (the Map of the World)

14 Konyo Bankoku Zenzu (the Map of the World)

The Sendai domain was enthusiastic in the pursuit of studies and culture from foreign countries. This world map is a copy of the large, block-printed map published in Beijin in 1602 by a missionary of the Society of Jesus, named Matteo Ricci. Very few copies are still in existence worldwide. With three copies in Japan, this particular one is a complete edition with the badge of the Society of Jesus on it. It was designated as the National Important Cultural Property in 1990.
