Nippon. Archiv zur Beschreibung von Japan und: SIEBOLD, P.F. VON.

Item Description: Leiden, Siebold 1832-1852, 1832. Leiden, Siebold, 1832-1852. 7 parts bound in 7 volumes. Folio (370 x 275mm). With 364 (of 365) plates, many folding or double-page. 19th century half morocco (2 text volumes bound to match). First and only edition of this magnificent publication depicting for the first time on a large scale the ethnography and geography of Japan. The present copy has 29 plates and 227 text pages in the Ernst Wasmuth Verlag reprint of 1930 and has one plate not called for in the collation made by Bernard Quaritch in 1869, however lacks the frontispiece to the first volume as well as the 'Schilling-Cannstadt Denkmahl' plate. The following text is lacking: Abtheilung I one leaf 'Inhalt des ersten Heftes'; Abtheilung V pp. 45-186; Abtheilung VI pages 65-72; Abtheilung VII pp. 165-328.Not included in the total count of 365 plates are 19 appendix plates of Japanese text (1 plate in Abtheilung 5 and 18 numbered plates in Abtheilung 7), 25 numbered plates of Japanese text Wa Nen Kei "Annales Japonici" as well as 2 unnumbered plates belonging to this section and the lithographed title (Abtheilung 3). All these plates are listed in the Quaritch collation in the section plates 'Stein-tafeln' and for this reason there seems to be some confusion about the total number of plates. A few copies were issued on large paper, our copy is the normal issue, the text in one volume is slightly shorter, but the size of the 7 volumes is uniform. A very attractive set.The work remained unfinished and 7 parts were published dealing with the following subjects: Mathematical and physical geography of Japan, hydrographical and geological maps, views and tables; People and state, a description of the inhabitants of Japan, their manners and customs, government and administration, with illustrations; Contributions to the history of Japan: mythology, history, archaeology, numismatics, with chronological maps, illustrations and tables; Arts and sciences, in particular the Japanese language and literature, with excerpts from original texts and illustrations; Religion: description of the deities, deified rulers, temples and monasteries, priests, monks and nuns, religious monuments, utensils and dress in Shintoism and Buddhism; Agriculture, industry and commerce with descriptions of related natural products and illustrations of commercial crops, animals, machines and implements; Neighbouring countries of Japan: Ezo with the Southern Kurile Islands, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands.Von Siebold was the most important European scientist who almost single handedly put Japanese studies on the European academic map. In 1823 he was posted to Japan as a surgeon to the Dutch factory on Deshima. He played a significant role in introducing Japan to the West and in his introduction of Western science to Japan. For the illustrations of the present work use was made of Siebold's large ethnographical collection, some 4700 items, which was opened to the public in 1831 and bought by the Dutch government in 1837.The Dutch were the only western nation to trade with Japan from 1639 until the opening of Japan by Perry. Von Siebold (1796-1866) was a German surgeon in service of the Dutch East India Company. 'Despite the restrictions imposed on the freedom of movement of the inhabitants, Siebold found life on the settlement quite comfortable. Since the late eighteenth century, when it had become easier to import and read books in Dutch, groups of scholars had started to engage themselves in the study of Western medicine. Dutch became the medium for these 'Dutch Studies', Rangaku. The main activities of these scholars, 'Rangakusha', were centered around the capital Edo, but all over the country was a growing interest in Western sciences during Siebold's time on Deshima. Soon, Siebold started teaching on a regular basis, mainly on the subjects of the natural sciences and medicine. In return, his students taught him Japanese and a little written Chinese. In addition, his students helped him with his botanical r. Bookseller Inventory # 6049

Item Description: Philadelphia: Wagner & McGuigan, Lithographers, [1848]., 1848. Two folio lithographs, each 17 x 21 1/2 inches, matted to 22 x 26 inches. First lithograph with several minor neatly repaired tears; expertly backed with heavier paper. Second lithograph with some very minor wear and soiling. Very good. This extremely rare pair of lithographs is one of the very few printed records of the first official American expedition to Japan, the diplomatic mission of Commodore James Biddle which attempted to establish formal relations between the United States and Japan in 1846. Although overshadowed by the famous and successful mission of Commodore Matthew Perry seven years later, the Biddle expedition deserves far greater fame. It was, in fact, the first official contact between America and Japan, and certainly a necessary precursor to Perry's breakthrough of 1853. This graphic representation of the events of the visit, with the extensive textual gloss accompanying each plate, given the dearth of written accounts by the key figures, is the most important published record of the Biddle expedition. The prints depict Biddle's ships, the Columbus and the Vincennes, in Tokyo Bay during Biddle's visit of July 20 to 29, 1846. Commodore James Biddle, a distinguished naval career officer and scion of a noted Philadelphia family, served his country in a diplomatic capacity on various occasions. Because of this, he was a reasonable choice in 1845 to head a mission to exchange ratifications of the first treaty between the United States and China, after which he was to attempt to negotiate a treaty with Japan. Biddle sailed from New York in June 1845, concluding the treaty with China early in 1846 and cruising along the Chinese coast throughout that spring. In early July, Biddle proceeded to the next part of his mission, sailing for Japan on the 7th. Rather than sail for the open port of Nagasaki, he decided to make directly for Yeddo (modern-day Tokyo), arriving there on July 20, mindful of his instructions to "ascertain if the ports of Japan are accessible," but "not in such a manner as to excite a hostile feeling or a distrust of the Government of the United States." Biddle's ships moved up Tokyo Bay on July 21, 1846, but were stopped by numerous small vessels carrying armed soldiers. His ships remained at anchor about fifteen miles below Tokyo for the duration of their visit. After an initial confrontation in which Japanese officials demanded that the Americans surrender their weapons, peaceful relations were established and numerous Japanese visited the ships, bringing many supplies as gifts. The first of the lithographs depicts the American warships at anchor, surrounded by many smaller Japanese vessels. Biddle continued negotiations to be received on shore, without success. Finally it was arranged that he would present an address to suitable Japanese officials on board a Japanese vessel, and he arrived in full uniform for the occasion. However, upon boarding the boat, the Commodore was deliberately knocked over by a common sailor. The Japanese officials professed to be mortified, and Biddle accepted their apology without insisting on harsh punishment for the offender. Subsequently there was much debate over whether Biddle had helped or hurt the American position by losing face or being magnanimous, depending on one's point of view, and this dialectic is still pursued by historians today. In any case, much of Commodore Perry's behavior in Japan seven years later was designed to avoid such an incident. Feeling that he had carried out his instructions as far as they could be pursued, Biddle accepted from his reluctant hosts both supplies and a tow out to sea to catch the wind. For their part, the Japanese were happy to aid him in departing. A small fleet of rowboats towed the American warships from their anchorage, and this scene is the subject of the second lithograph. After the departure on July 19, Biddle made for Hawaii, where he learned of the outbreak of the Mexican War. As a result, instead of heading h. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 46683

Travels into Several Remote Nations of the: SWIFT, Jonathan (1667-1745).

Item Description: 4 parts in 2 vols. 8vo (192 x 120 mm). Mit Frontispiz-Portrait von Gulliver, nach John Sturt radiert von Robert Sheppard und 6 Kupfertafeln mit Karten und Plänen nach H. Moll. XVI, 148 S.; [VI], 164 S.; [VI], 155 p.; [VIII], 199 S. Hellbraune Lederbände des 19. Jhs., signiert von Francis Bedford (1799-1883), Rücken über fünf erhabenen Bünden, mit Dreifachfilete in Goldprägung auf beiden Deckeln, mit reicher Rückenvergoldung und je zwei Rückenschildchen, marmorierte Vorsätze. London, Printed for Benj[amin] Motte, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, [28 October] 1726. Erstausgabe des berühmtesten satirischen Werks der englischen Literatur. Zwischen dem 28. Oktober und Dezember 1726 wurde es durch Benjamin Motte in insgesamt drei Drucken erstmals veröffentlicht; das Portrait-Frontispiz des vorliegenden ersten Druckes liegt wie üblich in der zweiten Variante vor, mit dem Text innerhalb der ovalen Einfassung. Der unmittelbar einsetztende Publikumserfolg wird bezeugt durch John Gays Brief vom 17. November 1726 (in: Correspondence Bd. III, S. 182): "About ten days ago a Book was published here of the Travels of one Gulliver, which hath been the conversation of the whole town . From the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery". Swift schrieb seinen von Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan beeinflussten utopisch-satirischen Reiseroman zwischen 1720/21 und 1726 in Irland, wohin er 1694 zurückgekehrt war. Um die Vorspiegelung tatsächlich unternommener Reisen glaubhaft zu machen, wurde das Buch mit sechs Landkarten, auf denen die beschriebenen Länder, meist in Verbindung mit wirklich vorhandenen, ausgestattet. Zusammen mit dem 1719 veröffentlichten und ebenfalls im Ich-Ton gehaltenen "Robinson Crusoe" von Daniel Defoe steht Swifts Hauptwerk am Anfang der Entwicklung des bürgerlichen Romans, der sich zur herrschenden Gattung herausbilden sollte. Swift bediente sich einer Gegenüberstellung von gesellschaftlicher Kritik und Utopie, wie sie durch die Reisen des recht naiven Helden Gulliver (von englisch "gullible" [=leichtgläubig]) in das Land der Zwerge beziehungsweise der Riesen symbolischer kaum sein könnte. Swift verstand sein Werk als harsche Kritik an Eitelkeit und Heuchelei jener Zeitgenossen, die er bei Hofe und in der Politik kennen gelernt hatte. Swifts fabulöses Buch fand dann allerdings bald auch Kritik, so u. a. durch Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Thackeray und Walter Scott. Die verwendeten Karten wurden nach Hermann Molls "A New and Correct Map of the Whole World Shewing ye Situation of its Principal Parts" von 1719 vermutlich von Sturt und Sheppard nachgezeichnet und gestochen. "These maps appeared in all the editions published by Motte; they were even reproduced in the pirated Dublin editions of 1727 . and they appeared in all the later 18th-century editions" (Frederick Bracher). - Ein frisches und schön gebundenes Exemplar.

[See: Peter Galassi, Friedlander. (New York: MoMA, 2005), "Books, Special Editions, and Portfolios" (pp. 444-459), #22.]Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. 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: GP Putnam & Company, New York, 1856. Folio. (20 1/4 x 14 1/2 inches). 12 ff. letterpress text. 10 lithographic prints (one tinted portrait of Perry from a daguerreotype by P. Haas, nine views by Heine [two of these chromolithographed, seven printed in two colours on india paper mounted]), all printed by Sarony & Co. 20th-century maroon half morocco over paper-covered boards, titled in gilt on spine, original wrappers bound in An important work recording Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan. William Heine was the official artist on Commodore Matthew C. Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853-54. On returning to the United States he produced several series of prints commemorating the trip. A group of six elephant-folio prints appeared in 1855, and the following year the present volume was issued, in a smaller format, with different images and with explanatory text. Both projects employed the New York lithographic firm of Sarony, among the best lithographers in the United States at that time. "As artistic productions, the pictures speak for themselves . none superior to them have been executed in the United States, and they have no cause to shun comparison with some of the best productions of Europe" (Introduction). Copies were produced tinted on regular paper as in the present copy and hand-coloured. The plates are numbered and titled as follows [1. portrait of Perry]; 2. Macao from Penha Hill; 3. Whampoa Pagoda; 4. Old China Street, Canton; 5. Kung-kwa at On-na, Lew-Chew; 6. Mia or road side chapel at Yokuhama; 7. Temple of Ben-teng in the harbor of Simoda; 8. Street and bridge at Simoda; 9. Temple of the Ha-tshu Man-ya-tshu-ro at Simoda; 10. Grave yard at Simoda Dio Zenge. Bennett describes the plates as "many times finer than those in the regular account of the Perry expedition." His remarks on the work's great rarity are confirmed by its absence from both of Cordier's Japanese bibliographies. Bennett, p.53; McGrath American Color Plate Books 123.
