Description:

Very interesting map showing the disputed regions in Manchuria, Russia, Korea and Japan during the Russo-Japanese War, one of the most significant wars of the early twentieth century.

With the port of Vladivostok unusable in winter, Russia sought a warm water port further south for their navy and maritime trade operations. Attempts to negotiate with the Japanese to use Port Arthur were unsuccessful, mainly because the Japanese wanted to maintain control over the Korean peninsula, and the Japanese declared war on the 8 February 1904. The Japanese had a decisive victory, surprising the Russian Tsar and international observers who had believed Russia’ forces were superior. This map includes details of strategic significance, such as the routes of steamers, railways, roads, underwater cables, and the winter limit of ice. Treaty ports, which were opened to foreign trade by the ‘ Treaties’ are underlined. Contains two insets, one showing England on the same scale and the other a general map of Asia highlighting the war areas of Manchuria and Japan. Published by George Philip and Son Ltd., the London Geographical Institute.
