Item Description: London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, MDCCXXVI [1726]. 2 vols., 8vo, A-K8, L2, [-]1, 2[-]2, 2B-2L8, M2; pp. [i-v], vi-xvi, [1], 2-148; (6), [1], 2-164; engraved frontispiece and plates facing B1r and 2B1r. Vol. II: A3, B-K8, L4, M2, 2A4, 2B-2M8,N8, O4: (6), [1], 2-155, [156, blank]; (8), [1], 2-199, [200, blank]; engraved plates facing B1r, D4r, F5v, and 2B1r. 20th century full brown morocco, concentric central panels ruled in gilt, black and blind, gilt fleurons at corners, gilt backstrips a touch faded in (6) compartments, marbled endpapers. Gilt edges. Bookplate at the front (see below). The true first edition, Teerink A with all the first issue points. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. All six maps and plans present. Decorative woodcut and engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame? the brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the piquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputian and then by a mimikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author's original intentions" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 185). Thus while Swift may have originally set out to write another of his razor-like satires, generations of readers including children love this book for the interminably entertaining story line. This copy was cleaned and rebound c. 1920, as books often were at that time, perhaps for Mrs. Poole. From the Caroline Boeing Poole Collection, sold by B.M. Rosenthal in 1977. Armorial bookplate bound in of Thomas Macro DD of Bury St Edmunds and Great Yarmouth (d.1743/4, aged 60); he was University Librarian at Cambridge so he might well have been an active book buyer and perhaps bought this copy when it was published as it is the rare first issue which was radically changed almost immediately after being published (see John Blatchly, Some Suffolk and Norfolk ex-libris. The Bookplate Society, 2000). Teerink 289. PMM 185. Rothschild 2104. Bookseller Inventory # 104929

Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work.

Item Description: London: Printed for the translator 1727., 1727. 2 volumes in one. Folio (13 4/8 x 9 inches). Additional engraved title-page, letterpress title-pages printed in red and black, list of subscribers, Appendix bound at end of volume 2 before the plates. Fine large engraved folding map of Japan, and 4 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved plates, most double-page and or folding (one or two short tears). Contemporary speckled calf (rebacked preserving the original spine). First edition in English, and internally a FINE AND BRIGHT COPY. Kaempfer, originally from Lemgo in Germany, was an inveterate traveler from an early age. In 1681 he went to Sweden and joined a Swedish trade mission destined for Persia. He arrived in Isfahan in 1685. While the embassy waited for over a year to be recognized at the Persian court, Kaempfer studied the language, geography, and plants of the region. Rather than return to Sweden with the embassy, Kaempfer joined a fleet of the Dutch East India Company and spent several years exploring Persia and Java. In 1690 he was appointed a member of a Dutch trade mission bound for Japan. His resulting "History of Japan." is an encyclopaedic and profusely illustrated description of the Japanese flora and fauna, government and industries, and it remained the chief source of Western knowledge of Japan for over a century. Sir Hans Sloane acquired Kaempfer's botanical specimens after the author's death, and had this translation by his librarian Scheuchzer prepared from the original manuscript.

Item Description: [France]: 1627., 1627. Single sheet, float mounted and framed (sheet size: 6 5/8 x 4 ½ inches; framed size: 11 ¾ x 9 ½ inches). Extremely fine etching of the Martyrs of Japan, with faint but visible thread lines and a watermark of an anchor, signed and identified within the plate. Provenance: With the collector's mark of Robert Hartshorne (d. 1945) on the verso (Lugt 2215b), his sale, October 1945, Parke-Bernet. First edition, first state (of 2). L. 594. M. 155. A strong impression of Callot's famous depiction of the 26 Christian martyrs of Japan, produced on the occasion of their beatification. The martyrs are displayed on crosses, their sides pierced by a lance. In the foreground on the left is a man on a horse; to the right there are soldiers sitting in the shade. In the sky, cherubim are guided by St. John the Baptist, preparing palms and crows for the martyrs. In the left corner within the plate it is signed "Callot fec." Along the bottom margin it reads, "Le Pourtraict des premier 23 Martire mis en Croix par la predicaon. de la S. foy au Giappon | soubs l'Empe Taicosam en la Cité de Mongasachi, de lordre des freres mineurs Observantin de S. Francois." " [Emperor] Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-90) who had unified the country [Japan] in 1587, had suddenly issued an order to expel all foreign missionaries. Because Hideyoshi formerly had shown a favorable attitude towards the Kirishitan [Japanese Christian converts], this turn in policy after he had brought the country under a unified regime came like a bolt out of the blue. The town of Nagasaki was confiscated and put under the government's direct control. The expulsion order was not strictly followed, however, it forced the missionaries to avoid activities that might catch the public eye "In 1593 the Governor of the Philippines sent a group with the Franciscan friar Pedro Baptista (1545-97) as ambassadors to Japan. They met with Hideyoshi and received permission to build a monastery in Kyoto, while they were in Japan. While he was negotiating, Baptista was busy doing missionary work claiming that the expulsion order was issued against the Society of Jesus and, therefore, did not concern the Franciscan Order. At this time the Pope in Rome acknowledged the exclusive right of the Society of Jesus to do mission work in Japan. As a consequence, a confrontation began between the Society of Jesus that was under the patronage of the Portuguese monarch and the Franciscans and other mendicant orders who were under the patronage of the Spanish monarch. "Just at that time, in 1596, the Spanish ship San Felipe on a voyage from Manila to Mexico encountered a typhoon and became stranded at Tosa, the island of Shikoku. Hideyoshi, in need of resources for his Korean adventure, seized the rich cargo of the San Felipe. However, seizure of the ship's cargo was unlawful in terms of the Japan-Spain friendship treaty concluded between Hideyoshi and Baptista. In order to turn it into a lawful action Hideyoshi renewed his order to expel the foreign missionaries in 1587 and ordered that the leaders of the Kirishitan in Kyoto and Osaka be executed. "As a consequence of this, six priests and brothers, including Baptista, together with fourteen of their helpers, were arrested in Kyoto. In Osaka three members of the Society of Jesus were arrested, and this brought the total number of those arrested to twenty-four. They had their ears cut off and were sent off to Nagasaki after they had been paraded through the streets of Kyoto, Osaka, and Sakai as a warning. On their way there they were joined by two more. They were all crucified at Nishizaka in Nagasaki, on 5 February 1597. This is known as the martyrdom of the twenty-six Japanese Saints" (Mullins, ed., pp. 10-11). Callot "was one of the first great artists to practice the graphic arts exclusively. His innovative series of prints documenting the horrors of war greatly influenced the socially conscious artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. "Callot's career was divided into an.

Item Description: Hitachi, [Tokyo], 1963. Smith, W. Eugene (illustrator). First edition. 4to., 79 pp., hundreds of b&w photographs printed in photogravure. Blue Japanese paper over boards, titled in gilt and issued without a dust jacket. Housed in a matching blue paper over boards, four-point portfolio, titled in gilt on the upper cover and fastened in the Japanese style with ivory clasps. The book is fine, as new. The portfolio shows slight toning at the spine and a less than one inch long crimp at the base of the rear board at the joint of the spine, slightly revealing a sliver of the base board; otherwise fine. A scarce book, and more so with the seldom seen portfolio case. Smith traveled extensively around the islands of Japan, making several trips over a period of years. He was struck by the pervasive presence of the Hitachi Corporation in the lives of the people - it was one of the leading world industrial giants. This is not an essay about Hitachi, although there are views of the factories; rather, it is an examination of the peoples of Japan and the intersection of the old customs and the new industrial strength of the country.

"In March, 1852, Commodore Perry was appointed commander of a naval expedition to be sent to Japan to induce their government to establish diplomatic relations with the United States. Perry felt that the only way to force Japan to cease her isolationist foreign policy would be through exhibiting superior naval forces. After entering Araga Harbor on July 8, 1853, the Japanese were eventually forced to accept a treaty that stipulated better treatment of shipwrecked seamen and permitted American ships to obtain fuel supplies at two Japanese ports, Hakadate and Shimoda. The most important result, however, was that the visit contributed to the collapse of the feudal regime and to the modernization of Japan". (Hill). Bookseller Inventory # 000057

Item Description: eyestorm, London, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Limited edition of 30, this being #7/30, numbered and signed by Parr on the vellum-like cover page. Custom-designed cherry-pink silk-covered hand-made and hand-bound book with 20 mounted original color photographs, all of which feature fake cherry blossoms seen in situ in Japan's capital city. Book of original mounted color photographs is enclosed in a cherry-pink silk-covered Japanese-style hand-made four-sided hinged case (shiho chitsu, top cover and all four corners fold out when 'bone-like' clasps are removed).

New in publisher's packaging. This special edition book was exclusively produced for eyestorm. From the publisher: "'Cherry Blossom Time in Tokyo' is Martin Parr's personal view of the complex mixture of ancient and modern, authentic and artificial that is modern Japan. Only those flowers in the background of the first image are real: the successive images all feature fake blooms in locations that are progressively distanced from the natural world. Seen looped around shop displays of laptops, mobile phones, cameras and necklaces, these flowers soften, and are in striking contrast to, the bright, colorful world of commerce that is focused on in the photographs. displaying Martin Parr's sharp eye for absurdity and abundant humor."
