Stranger almost than the "Manuscript found in a Copper Cylin
der" is the copy of a map which came across seas to Honolulu from
a Buddhist Temple in the mountains of central Japan. It is a map
of the world made iooo years ago. Dr. Kobayashi, the well-known
Japanese physician and surgeon of Honolulu, has received a copy
of the map, which he believes to have been made by Chinese priests
ten centuries ago. - s
The map is drawn on the principle of the Mercator Projection
showing the North Pole as the center of a circle in which are the
continents of North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and
Australia.
"The map was found by my brother in a Japanese temple in
the mountains of Japan," said Dr. Kobayashi. "It has been hidden
from the Japanese government in modern times just as it was in
ancient times, for in olden days such a map would have been de
stroyed by tlie authorities. According to a letter the original map
was brought from China by a Buddhist priest and concealed in this
temple.
"Ten years ago my brother was a consumptive. Although I
was a physician he did not wish to be treated with medicines. He
decided to go into the mountains and attempt a cure by himself.
For ten years he has remained there and used his will power to effect
a cure. Today he is a well man. During his stay there he found
this map. He evolved from it a theory of the flatness of the, earth,
despite all modern facts showing it to be a sphere. This theory, has
been his one aim in life. He is an artist and in order to demonstrate
his theory he made beautiful drawings, picturesque and attractive
to the eye, in which mechanical, astronomical and engineering meth
ods are shown.
"My brother goes back to tfie days of Columbus and Amerigo
Vespucci who, he says, sailed for a new country believing that by
sailing directly in one general direction they would ultimately come
to the place.
"We modems know that a vessel sailing from a port and going
continually in a general easterly manner will arrive at the same place.
The vessel, of course, goes around the globe. My brother's theory
is that one sails about a vast plane as one would sail around the
edges of a bowl."
The illustrations accompanying the map are beautiful examples'
of Japanese art. No more attractive book of geography has ever
been compiled. It is a mass of cherry blossoms, Fujiyamas, beau
tiful blue seas dotted with the sails of junks and sampans. There
are landscapes and seascapes and bizarre pictures of Japanese wo
men, designed along old-time styles. But in every sheet of such
pictures the engineering lines are brought out in a way that does
not mar the picture. With the text matter explaining each page,
the geography should be easily understood.
Dr. Kobayashi now has all the original sheets, scores of them,
and these he will return to Japan to his brother, who intends to
have them put in the hands of publishers. It will be one of the
most novel publications cf the period.
The original map of which a copy drawn by Dr. Kobayashi' s
brother, and of which the accompanying cut is a tracing, is worm-
eaten and barely holds together. The above map with all the con
tinents and even the Hawaian islands shown, was evidently not
made by the priests who traced the original lines. : '
