49 plates of map from Kiheitai Nikki (奇兵隊日記) have been newly released

The Kiheitai Nikki (奇兵隊日記) is a record of the activities of the Kiheitai, founded by Takasugi Shinsaku at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate.
It was held by Shinagawa Yajiro (品川弥二郎) at the memorial hall Sonjo-do (尊攘堂). Whole collection of the Sonjo-do was donated to the Main Library in 1900, and became the current “Meiji Restoration Collection.”
The Kiheitai Nikki consists of 27 volumes of bound records, which were already available on this site, and 49 plates of maps.
