Interesting Madrid-published, Spanish-language map of Korea and southern Manchuria, prepared, as the cover says, with information from the Spanish War Depot.

The impetus for the map was surely the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War, a Major Power Conflict at the beginning of the 20th century that dominated world attention for some time.

Presumably, Spanish authorities determined the need for an updated militarily-focused map of the Korean Peninsula.

The short legend in the lower-right lists roads, railways, and telegraph lines. Only one railroad is noted in Korea at that time, from Seoul to the sea.

Color-lithographed folding map with orignal printed green-paper covers (somewhat worn).
