Japanese Maps Collection launches on Manchester Digital Collections
The launch of a new Japanese Maps Digital Collection, created in collaboration with the John Rylands University Library at the University of Manchester (UK), as part of my Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Project (Travel in Tokugawa Period Japan (1603-1868): Identity, Nation and Social Transformation, 2019-2021), has been announced recently by Sonia Favi.
The Collection is part of the Manchester Digital Collections portal, and draws on cartographic materials from the University of Manchester Library Japanese Collection and the Maps Collection. It is an ongoing project, to which items are being progressively added.
The following blog post gives a general overview of the collection: https://rylandscollections.com/2021/03/08/japanese-maps-collection-launches-on-manchester-digital-collections/.
