This might be of interest. The University of British Columbia collection includes prints by some of the best known Japaneese printmakers, and has recently been digitized. :)
Maps of the Tokugawa Era

"UBC Library's Rare Books and Special Collections holds one of the world's largest collections of maps and guidebooks of the Japanese Tokugawa period, ca. 1600-1867. Most of this collection was acquired from George H. Beans, the original collector, and is accompanied by his inventory A List of Japanese Maps of the Tokugawa Era. To that has been added a small collection from George Bonn, as well as a number of maps acquired from various other sources."
