Published by the U.S. Navy, this map of the coast of China and Japan was the direct result of Commodore Matthew C. Perry's ground-breaking diplomatic journey to Asia in 1853 -1854. Among the goals of the expedition was the completion of coastal surveys of China, Japan, and other nations in this region. The missing Korean coastline provides evidence that Perry did not travel as far north as Korea.
