    大明一統二京十三省図 / Great Ming Unification Two Capitals and Thirteen Provinces Map / Da Ming Yi Yong Er Jin


    大明一統二京十三省図 / Great Ming Unification Two Capitals and Thirteen Provinces Map / Da Ming Yi Yong Er Jing Shi San Shen Tu 1769 (dated) 72 x 122 in (182.88 x 309.88 cm) 1 : 2060000


    A previously unknown, monumentally proportioned, and enigmatic Chinese language manuscript map of Ming Dynasty China and Korea prepared on an imposing scale. Measuring a staggering 72 x 122 inches, this is by far the largest single-sheet manuscript map we have worked with. With a focus on China, the map covers from the Andaman Sea to the western shores of Hokkaido and from the Gobi Desert and Mount Paektu (Baekdu or Changbai, North Korea) to the Malay Peninsula (squished up and distorted in the lower left). The map is abundant with rich political and topographical detail including the Great Wall of China, countless towns, roads, trade routes, mountains, and riverways. Throughout there are numerous areas where town names and annotations have been painted over and revised or blocked out with a paste down. The topography throughout China is quite detailed although it becomes less so when focusing on non-Chinese regions such as Korea, Japan, Central Asia, and Malaya. Those who can admire Chinese calligraphy will note that the characters on this map is exceptionally beautiful and well executed.

    Text in the lower right quadrant states that this map was drawn in Japan in Meiwa 6 or 1769. There appears to be some ambiguity in the text relating to the word 'Nambu,' which could mean either Northern Japan in the vicinity of Hachinohe, or 'Southern Japan' as we interpreted it. Although there is no specific authorship ascribed, based upon the subject matter, style, textual annotations, and and title, we can make certain educated speculations. Following the fall of the Ming Dynasty to the Manchurian Qing in 1644, numerous Ming Chinese scholars, reluctant to live under Qing Manchurian rule, fled to exile in southern Japan, primarily Nagasaki, where they and their descendants had a tremendous influence on Tokugawa Era Japanese thought and religion. This map's focus on Ming China, compounded by the statement that may have been drawn in Southern Japan during the Meiwa period, suggests that it was produced by the descendants of these Chinese exiles or, potentially, their sinophile disciples. Note how the specific route between Ningbo, China, and Nagasaki, Japan, is highlighted with annotation reading '1800 miles to reach Kyushu Coast of Japan' (author's translation). The Ningbo-Nagasaki trade route was the primary route by which Chinese exiles, as well as scholarship, entered Japan. Moreover, the title which includes the term, 大明 (Great Ming), is inherently Chinese and is unlikely to have been applied by a Japanese mapmaker of the Meiwi Period.

    The sources for this map are only partially evident but it is noteworthy that the title 大明一統二京十三省図, or Great Ming Unification Two Capitals and Thirteen Provinces, is one generally associated with official Ming Dynasty maps. The use of this specific title was in fact punishable by death under the Qinq. All of this suggest that the map was drawn from official Ming sources secreted into Japan by Chinese exiles fleeing Qing influence. The primary source is most likely the 大明一統 志 (Daming yitong zhi) or Records of the Unity of the Great Ming , a massive Ming geography, compiled in the 1450s, of which only portions survive today. The map also bears some similarity to Ming era maps such as the 大明混一圖 (Da Ming Hun Yi Tu), or Great Ming Amalgamated Map. This is most evident in the form of the China coastline, the course of the Yellow River, the Gobi, and the absence of Taiwan (which did not appear on Chinese maps until the Qing maps of 1708), all of which are suggestive of the Da Ming Hun Yi Tu.

    There are several interesting text blocks. One, at the bottom center, bears a list of 44 foreign countries. Many of these are hard to translate, being derived from Arabic, Malay, and other exotic languages, but some are identifiable including Ryukyu (Okinawa), Khmer (Cambodia), Siam (Thailand), Sumatra, Java, Ceylon, and Srivijava (a legendary powerful thalassocratic city-state on Sumatra that exercised influence over most of Southeast Asia).

    The text block on the lower right corner features a history of the map starting with the Emperor Hongwu (1368 – 1398), founder of the Ming Dynasty, then the conquest of Mongolia and the Gobi by Emperor Yung Lei (3rd Ming Emperor), the founding of Yunan and Guizhou, and the consolidation of 14 provinces into the traditional Ming 13. It is also here that the map's date of creation, Meiwa 6 (1769), is noted.

    The text block just to the left of the history block described above features a list of the 13 provinces of Ming China.

    A once in a lifetime discovery. The map is folded into a custom Asian style clamshell box.



    一幅以前未知的、具有纪念碑式比例的、神秘的明代中国和朝鲜的汉文手稿地图,以惊人的规模编制。这幅地图的尺寸达到了惊人的72 x 122英寸,是迄今为止我们合作过的最大的单张手稿地图。该地图以中国为重点,涵盖了从安达曼海到北海道的西海岸,以及从戈壁滩和白头山(朝鲜的白头山或长白山)到马来半岛(左下角被压扁和扭曲)。该地图有丰富的政治和地形细节,包括中国的长城、无数的城镇、道路、贸易路线、山脉和河道。在整个地图中,有许多地方的城镇名称和注释被涂抹和修改,或者用浆糊涂掉了。整个中国的地形是相当详细的,尽管在关注朝鲜、日本、中亚和马来亚等非中国地区时,它变得不那么详细。那些能够欣赏中国书法的人将会注意到,这幅地图上的字特别漂亮,而且执行得非常好。


    右下角的文字指出,这幅地图是在明和6年或者说1769年在日本绘制的。文字中的 "南部"一词似乎有些含糊不清,可能是指八户附近的日本北部,也可能是我们解释的 "日本南部"。虽然没有指定具体的作者,但根据主题、风格、文本注释和标题,我们可以做出某些有根据的推测。1644年明朝落入满清之手后,许多明朝的中国学者不愿意生活在清朝的满洲统治之下,逃到日本南部,主要是长崎流亡,他们和他们的后代对德川时代的日本思想和宗教产生了巨大的影响。这幅地图以明代中国为重点,再加上可能是在明和年间在日本南部绘制的说法,表明它是由这些中国流亡者的后代或可能是他们的慕华门徒绘制的。请注意,中国宁波和日本长崎之间的具体路线是如何被强调的,注释是 "1800里到达日本九州海岸"(作者的翻译)。宁波-长崎的贸易路线是中国流亡者以及学者进入日本的主要路线。此外,包含 "大明 "一词的标题本身就是中国的,不太可能由明和时期的日本地图绘制者使用。






    右下角的文字块介绍了地图的历史,从明朝创始人洪武皇帝(1368-1398)开始,然后是永历皇帝(明朝第三任皇帝)对蒙古和戈壁的征服,云南和贵州的建立,以及将14个省合并为传统的明朝13个省。这里还注明了地图的创作日期,即明和六年 (1769年)。
