林子平『三国通覧図説』(須原屋市兵衛、1786年刊)の附図「琉球国全図」を転写したものである。同書は1792年に絶版となり版本の現存は少ないが、転写された地図が多数残されている。三省とは山北・中山・山南のこと。

Title: Ryūkyū sanshō narabini sanjūrokutō no Zu (Map of the Three Districts and the thirty-six islands of Ryukyu).

This is a copy of a map of Ryukyu, appended in a book called Sangoku Tsūran Zusetsu written by Hayashi Shihei
and published in 1786. Sangoku Tsūran Zusetsu went out of print in 1792; there are only a few copies of the book
remaining today. However, the appended map has been copied many times, and many of those copies still remain.

The "Three Districts" refers to the three regional areas of Okinawa Island: North (Hokuzan), Central (Chūzan),
and South (Nanzan). The word "thirty-six" is not literal, but means "numerous" figuratively.
