Map of Japan and the Chinese Empire

While browsing today in the wake up my odd honor, I came across this map from the Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection's Cambridge Modern History Atlas, 1912


This map struck me because it reverses the standard view of China and Japan. Instead of a whole China and an expansionary Japanese Empire, it shows the Rising Sun's lands as just "Japan," while being careful to separate China from Chinese dependencies. Observe the rump China:


And the majestic Japan


A good reminder of what a Gap was a century ago, and that Japan had built a Core with Creating.

When browsing the web this is the first time I see a map of china like this, I mean the letters printed in the map are like ancient writing which is something I like.
