Summary
In 42 panels this untitled coloured woodblock sugoroku game shows the peoples of the world as they appeared to the Japanese artist in the mid 19th century, and the many images and text are intriguingly inaccurate. In particular the image of the Australian Aboriginal man is mistaken in both image and text which in translation reads "the people of this country have big lips and the hair that they tout [?] resembles the fur of wild animals" (possibly a reference to the wearing of possum skin cloaks)
