Manuscript on high quality mulberry paper, entitled: NARABAYASHI, Chinzan

About this Item: A richly illustrated manuscript, important and influential in the history of medicine and surgery in Japan, revealing the introduction of European medical knowledge in Japan, through Ambroise Paré's Chirurgie, Scultetus's Armamentarium Chirurgicum, and Spigelius's Opera. This is a luxury copy (only one similar set survives, at Nagasaki), in oblong folio format, and written and finely illustrated on fine thick mulberry paper. Our manuscript contains 134 exquisitely drawn and richly hand-colored illustrations. Chinzan (or Eikyu) Narabayashi (1648-1711), belonged to a family of professional interpreters in Nagasaki and became proficient in the Dutch language. He had contact with several Dutch physicians on the island of Dejima and their influence inspired the young Japanese to forsake his profession to study medicine. By 1691, the shogunate offered him a position of "official physician." Narabayashi learned Western medicine from the Dutch doctors on Dejima and from them he acquired an edition of Paré's Chirurgie in 1688. That very copy remained in the family until 1891 when it was presented to Tokyo University Library. It was destroyed during the 1923 earthquake and fire. "Geka Soden" is based on the masterworks of Paré, Scultetus, and Spigelius and also took into consideration oral instructions given by Dutch physicians to Narabayashi, along with his own theories derived from his own surgical experiences. The text also reflects Chinese influences including the explanation of in-yo (the positive and negative) and applying prescriptions used in Chinese medicine. There are considerable similarities in structure in the first part to Chin Jikko's (or Chen Shigong, 1555-1636) Geka Seiso or Waike zhengzong [trans.: Principles of Surgery], first published in China in 1617. In 1706, Narabayashi's "Geka Soden" first appeared in manuscript in three parts or volumes and copies were immediately made (the original manuscript seems to not survive and the text was never printed). THE MANUSCRIPT: Our copy of "Geka Soden" is in three oblong folio volumes. The first volume - "Geka Soden" - is unillustrated. It is a general discussion on the pathology of diseases and their treatment. There is a Preface dated 1706 by Kaibara Ekiken (1630-1714), the most famous scholar in Japan at the time, and who was familiar with Western science, especially botany. The second volume is "Kinso tetsuboku-bu" and the text and illustrations clearly derive from Paré, Scultetus, and Spigelius along with information received from Dutch doctors on Dejima and readings of Chinese texts. The numerous illustrations are very finely drawn and are in rich fresh colors. There are illustrations of the opened skull, many kinds of saws and surgical instruments, a trepanned head from the front, a levatory placed on the trepanned head, the bandage of Galen, a dry suture to heal a facial wound, a patient with an eye injury, treatment of a hair lip, a bandage on a mutilated arm, dismembering knives, restorations of dislocated shoulders, restoration of a dislocated spine, extension of a broken humerus, surgical tools to remove bullets, amputation of a leg, removal of an arrow and a dart from the leg and thigh, more surgical tools, etc., etc. While the human figures in the illustrations are in Western dress, they have "orientalized" faces. The third volume is entitled "Orandakoku yaku yu shuge" - describes various medications and oils, many of which clearly come from Dutch pharmacopoeias. Others derive from Narabayashi's own experiences and from Chinese medicine. The name of each medicament is followed by its source, therapeutic effect, herbs and other materials used, and method of preparation. It is finely illustrated with depictions of distillation apparatus, furnaces, cooling vessels, and receiver and storing flasks which Narabayashi saw at Dejima. The distillation apparatus is clearly Western. Our fine and beautifully illustrated manuscript consists of three parts - the only texts ori. Seller Inventory # 5974

Finely illustrated scroll on a wooden roller,: PERRY: BLACK SHIP

About this Item: A unique early account of Commodore Matthew C. Perry's second visit to Japan, during which he negotiated the Treaty of Kanagawa; our scroll is composed of 20 scenes on 30 joined sheets of paper, and conveys the initial Japanese impressions of the Americans, their ships, technology, and weapons. Our "Blackship Scroll" was especially compiled by Otsuki Bankei for his fiefdom lord and contains many images and texts which are not found in other scrolls of this genre. As soon as word spread of Perry's second arrival, the scroll's creator, Otsuki Bankei (1801-78), was immediately sent by his fiefdom lord to record the proceedings of this fateful encounter. While the Americans' first stay in 1853 was brief, this second visit was much longer, with Perry intent on ratifying a comprehensive treaty. The Americans remained for more than a month and, for the first time, they were allowed to spend considerable time on shore. The two sides were able to interact and socialize more than ever before. This extended stay gave the Japanese unprecedented exposure to the foreigners and their first observations are vividly recorded on this scroll. It is important to note that our scroll is considerably different from other scrolls illustrating Perry's second visit to Japan; it also contains text by Bankei not present in other examples. Our scroll is a unique record of what Bankei witnessed and heard. He was assisted by two artists, Sekishi Kuwagata (1800-55) and Ranryo Seki (1805-63). The original box, in which the scroll is preserved, has a very old label pasted on the lid: "Kaei koin Amerikasen raiko no sai, kinkai kikan, Sendai samurai ko Otsuki Bankei fukumei no genpon" [trans.: "The Arrival of American Ships in 1854, Strange Sight off the Coast of Kanagawa, Original Report by Otsuki Bankei, Samurai of Sendai"]. The scroll can be divided into 20 distinct scenes and each one is finely drawn and delicately heightened with various colors of wash: 1. The scroll begins with a large calligraphic title "Kinkai Kikan," Following the title, Otsuki Bankei has written a short preface (in trans.): "1854 Spring, American messengers and ships anchored off Kinkai (Kanagawa), I received an order from my fiefdom lord to record these events in a detailed manner with images, therefore I immediately created this report. [Signed]: Otsuki Bankei." Bankei, a Confucian scholar and gunnery expert, was in service to the lord of Sendai Fiefdom and was ordered to Yokohama to witness and record the negotiations between the Japanese representatives and the American delegation. 2. The first image is the initial view of the American fleet of nine ships seen off the shore of Yokohama. Each ship is named, the day of each ship's arrival, number of cannons, number of crew, each ship's commander, type of ship, and their dates of departure. We also see the outskirts of Yokohama and several defensive ships belonging to the Akashi fiefdom, with their identifying flags. 3. The next scene, which takes place on 10 February 1854, shows the Americans disembarking from their ships and approaching the shore in smaller boats. On shore, we see a complex of newly constructed buildings where the meetings were to be held. The text reads: "Our own government officials started to meet our American guests, 28 of their smaller boats headed to Yokohama-kan [reception hall]. That day, the people who landed included Perry and a total of about 640 sailors." 4. The following scene depicts the reception buildings and a display of American cannons firing, inaugurating the meeting between Perry and the shogun's representative. This scene is entitled "Detailed View of Yokohama Reception Hall, March 1854. Painted by Ranryo Seki at Kanagawa" and shows the venue which the Japanese had constructed to hold negotiations. We also see the Emperor's ceremonial barge - Tenjinmaru - which transported the chief Japanese negotiators and their aides. Samurai and troops, discretely armed and ready to protect the Japanese par.

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

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 6049

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # WRCAM 46683

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

About this Item: 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.

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.

About this Item: Dordrecht, Amsterdam, Joannes van Braam, Gerard onder de Linden, 1724-1726.5 parts in 8 volumes. Folio. Contemporary half calf, spines gilt and with black title-labels (later boards). With engraved allegorical frontispiece, printed title-page in red and black, folding portrait of Valentijn, 19 portraits of the Governors-General, and 326 illustrations, maps, plans, bird's-eye views and plates (most of them double-page or folding; including fragments of Javanese manuscripts).First edition. - One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church who lived for many years on Amboyna and Java. During this period he collected an enormous mass of information, especially in the fields of history, geography and ethnology, concerning all parts of the world where the Dutch East India Company (VOC) was active: Indonesia, with large parts on Batavia and the Moluccas, Persia, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Cape of Good Hope, Japan, China and Formosa. The work is profusely illustrated with fine engraved maps, plans, portraits and spectacular views. They are engraved by the best artists of the time like F. Ottens, J.C. Philips, G. Schouten, J. Goeree etc. mostly after designs by M. Balen. Apart from the fine engravings the work is of particular interest for its cartography. It contains interesting maps of Australia, probably drawn after manuscript maps now lost. For his descriptions of the natural history of Amboyna Valentijn used i.a. the unpublished 'Amboinsch Dierboek' by the famous naturalist Rumphius, of which the original manuscript has been lost. - (Not inserted and also not mentioned in the plate-index is the portrait of Governor General De Haan). - With bookplates of J.C.

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.

Journael ende historis verhael van de reyse: BROUWER, Hendrik.

About this Item: Cordier, Japonica, cols. 354-355; Howgego, to 1800, B169, V63; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 372; Muller, America 358 ("of the highest interest"); Sabin 8427; STCN (7 copies). First edition of the account of the charting voyage by Maerten Gerritsz. Vries (1589-1646) to the north of Japan, together with the popular account of a Dutch West India Company voyage to Chile under Hendrik Brouwer (1581-1643). Brouwer, one of the directors of the Dutch West India Company, acted as the commander of a fleet of six ships, specially sent to the western coast of South America to activate the trade between the Dutch and the natives. During this voyage, which resulted in the first place in a better knowledge of that coast, Brouwer died at Chiloe and was buried at Valdivia in August 1643. Appended to that journal is the very important account of a charting voyage to Japan. That same year (1643) Maerten Gerritsz. Vries, got "instructions from Governor Van Diemen . to examine the countries to the north of Japan and to assess their economic and trading potential, particularly with regard to mineral wealth" (Howgego). He visited Hokkaido (Yezo) and Sakhalin, discovered the islands Iturup and Urup and gave his name to the strait between those islands.

About this Item: Morison, Commodore Perry's Japan Expedition Press and shipboard theatre, 1967, pp. 40-41; Yellin, "Mrs. Belmont, Matthew Perry and the 'Japanese Minstrels'", in: American Music, 14 (1996), pp. 257-275, at pp. 267-269 (including fig. 6); cf. Lovett, "The Japan Expedition Press", in: Harvard Library bulletin, 12 (1958), pp. 242-252, illustrating a similar programme for a concert on 26 May 1854. Second copy recorded of the printed programme (serving also as invitation) to a minstrel show performed on-board Commodore Perry's flagship by the "Japanese Olio Minstrels", comprising sailors from the ship's crew, many performing in black-face, but also with a few African-Americans. Perry made his expedition to Japan to deliver the American President Millard Fillmore's letter of friendship to the Emperor of Japan and negotiate the Treaty of Kanagawa. As the ship left Hong Kong for Japan in January 1854, it set up an on-board printing office with a small press that had been sent from America by the State Department. The treaty was signed on 31 March 1854 and after it was tested at Hakodate (Hakodadi) Perry invited various Japanese dignitaries to attend the minstrel show on-board his ship on 29 May 1854, at 7 pm. The only copy recorded in the literature belonged to the wife of Commodore Perry's grandson and passed to the Naval Academy Museum in Annapolis, Maryland.The programme lists the pieces performed and gives the names of the crew members for each act. Programmes are known for three shows given on the ship, but only two were printed by the ship's own press. They are extremely rare.Somewhat foxed but in very good condition, with only a few folds and with the paper stretched apart at a couple points along the edge. A remarkable document of a unique American musical genre, as performed for Japanese on Commodore Perry's ship. Seller Inventory # F1AE361IF05P

About this Item: G.P. Putnam & Company, New York, 1856. Folio. (20 x 14 inches). 12 ff. letterpress text. 10 lithographic prints (one tinted portrait of Perry on india paper mounted from a daguerreotype by P. Haas, nine hand-coloured views by Heine [two of these chromolithographed, seven printed in two colours on india paper mounted]), all printed by Sarony & Co., all mounted on thick card with smooth glossy backings. Text in the original yellow pictorial wrappers, expertly rebacked to style with purple cloth, the plates loose as issued with the text within a half purple morocco and period purple cloth portfolio, yellow pastedowns and flaps, cloth ties. All within a black morocco backed box. An important work recording Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan: the very rare deluxe, hand coloured issue on card. 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 (though with some plates with several colors) on regular paper and a very rare deluxe hand-coloured issue on card (like the present example). 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.

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. Two distinct issues of Heine's work were published: a regular issue with hand coloured plates on thick card; and the deluxe issue, like the present, with more elaborate hand coloring and on thick cards with glossy paper backings. The deluxe issue is considerably more rare than the regular issue. Bennett, p.53; McGrath American Color Plate Books 123. Seller Inventory # 34436

A Voyage of Discovery to the North: BROUGHTON, William Robert.

About this Item: London: Cadell & Davies, 1804. First edition. 4to., xx, 393, [1](list of plates), [2](ads.)pp. 3 folding engraved maps, 4 folding & 2 other engraved plates, all expertly mounted on linen. Fine 20th-century polished calf by Zaehnsdorf, gilt ruled edges to boards, spine richly gilt in compartments with red lettering and date labels, some light toning, with wide margins and uncut edges. very rare: first edition on large paper of one of the most important voyages made to the northwest coast of America, supplementing Vancouver's achievements. In 1791 Broughton had sailed with Vancouver and explored the mouth of the Columbia River in the Chatham. Two years later he returned to the northwest in Bligh's old ship, the Providence, to rejoin Vancouver at Nootka Sound for further surveys. However, having sailed via Rio de Janeiro, Australia, Tahiti and the Hawaiian Islands, he failed to find Vancouver at Nootka and continued South to Monterrey before heading across the Pacific. The importance of Broughton's work lies not only in his surveying work (Britain based her 1846 claims to the Oregon Territory on these) but also in his notices of Japan and of Russian interests in Asia. The maps all pertain to his charting of the Sea of Japan, Formosa and the Ryukyu Islands while the plates are of Japanese subjects. Although Broughton did not call at any ports in Alaska, he reported on the Russian American Company's possessions outside the northwest American coast, especially in the Kurile Islands, and on Russian-Japanese relations. Forbes records two issues of the first edition, the sole difference occurring on the final page: one issue with the list of plates on this page (this copy) and the other with advertisements.

Heine (1827-1885) was the official artist on Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853-54. The sketches he produced of the places he visited and the people he encountered there, together with the daguerreotypes taken by his colleague Eliphalet Brown Jr., formed the basis of the official iconograhy of the American expedition to Japan which remains an important record of the country as it was before the foreigners arrived in force. Upon his return to New York in 1855 he published several books: a collection of prints entitled Graphic Scenes of the Japan Expedition; and the 400 sketches which were included in Perry's official report, as well as his memoirs, Reiss um die Welt nach Japan (Leipzig, 1856).

About this Item: New York 1856, Putnam. Tall folio, single hand colored litho of "PASSING THE RUBICON," 82.5 x 56.5 cm., slight browning, marginal tears, mounted on a stiff cardboard, VERY R A R E ! This work preceded the famous three volume set published in 1856: THE JAPAN EXPEDITION. GRAPHIC SCENES OF THE JAPAN EXPEDITION was a spectacular work and contained 10 hand tinted large and nine smaller colored lithographs to document the arrival of Perry & his Squadron. * Most were drawn by Heine the young German who was the expedition artist. The complete work includes: 1. PORTRAIT OF M.C. PERRY. 2. MACAO FROM PENHA HILL. 3. PAGODA OF WHAMPOA. 4. OLD CHINA STREET IN CANTON. 5. KUNG-TWA, AT ON-NA, LEW CHEW. 6. MIA, OR ROADSIDE CHAPEL AT YOKU-HAMA. 7. TEMPLE AT BEN-TENG,IN THE HARBOR OF SIMODA. 8. STREET & BRIDGE AT SIMODA. 9. TEMPLE OF THE HA-TSHU-MAN-YA TSCHU-RO, AT SIMODA. 10. GRAVEYARD AT THE SIMODA, DIO ZENGE. * Of these exceedingly RARE lithographs one prints is now offered: PASSING THE RUBICON documents the event of July 11, 1853 wherein Lt. Silas Bent from the Mississippi's first cutter confronted Japanese guard boats and a coastal Junk. This is illustrated in S. Morrison: "OLD BRUIN" COMMODORE MATTHEW CALBRAITH PERRY on p.327. This scene shows the American sounding party at work on Monday morning [July 11th], ".when a flotilla of thirty to forty guard boats filled with soldiers who presented quite a bristling front with their spears and matchlocks, while their lacquered caps and shields flashed brightly in the sun confronted the flag launch under charge of Lt. Bent & the senior Japanese officer made minatory gestures with his iron fan and yelled orders which nobody in the American launch understood. The Lieutenant, anxious to avoid a crash, altered his collision course but dispatched another boat to the Mississippi to ask Capt. Lee to move closer. On the steamer's approach the guard boats retired. And Perry named the nearest point of land 'Point Rubicon' because no foreign ship had passed it for three centuries." See Morrison p.328. * The lithograph PASSING THE RUBICON is 83 x 56.5 cm. overall, print size is 83 x 49.5 cm., with top and side edges trimmed, bottom edge slightly trimmed; overall browned with some surface scuffs, tears, laid down on an old cardboard, complete illustration present, with minor faults. * The complete title reads: PASSING THE RUBICON. Lieut's. Bent in the Mississippi's First Cutter Forcing His Way Through a fleet of Japanese Boats While Surveying the Bay of Yedo, July 11th., 1853. To Commodore M.C. Perry, Officers and men of the Japan Expedition this print is respectfully dedicated by their Obt. Servths [sic]. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: R.

About this Item: Edo, Sagamiya Tahe, 1691. Soft cover. Condition: Good. 2nd Edition. (JAPAN)Ishikawa, (Tomonobu Toshiyuku) Ryusen. Nihon Kaisan chôriku zu. (Map of the Seas, Mountains, and Lands of Japan) Edo, Sagamiya Tahe (publisher) Genroku 4. 1691. Handcoloured woodblock-printed map of Japan (overall size 104 x 181cm; print area 81 x 167.5cm), made up of individual sheets. Folded in original blue paper wrapper decorated with plant motifs on soft cardboard (27 x 18.5cm); calligraphic title label; edges worn; rubbed. Preserved in stiff cloth folder. A superb large travel map of Japan, innovative for the wealth of additional detail contained. Charted are the provinces of ancient Japan, its fortified towns, land and water routes, post stations and ferry crossings. The size of the map allowed the inclusion of travel itineraries for the main highways, shipping and sea routes, as well as images of temples, shrines and other places of interest, The area covered extends from Ryuku (Okinawa) in the south west to Tsushima in the north and Matsumae (Hokkaido) in the north east; Korea and the sea of Busan feature in the northwest . The principal nautical routes are indicated; a table in the upper margin gives distances from Nagasaki (then the only port open) to China (Nanjing & Fukien), Indonesia (Jakarta), Vietnam (Tonkin), Cambodia, and Thailand. Numerous ships, decoratively depicted, are shown sailing from the west to the southern seas. A striking feature of the map are multiple squares in various sizes giving the locations of the castles of the Daimyo, or regional lords, sometimes with sketches of buildings and surrounds, and values of their fiefs with details of income from rice cultivation (koku-daka) Ishikawa (fl. 1680-1713), commercial cartographer, woodblock master, book illustrator and printmaker, created useful travel guides by re-designing and improving earlier shogunate maps with the latest available information on the country; his map of Japan was first published in 1689. He is thought to be a pupil of Hishikawa Moronobu. The German naturalist, Engelbert Kaempfer, acquired a copy of an Ishikawa map during his visit to Japan in 1692, and adapted it for his History of Japan published in 1727, the first western book on Japan. As the country was generally closed to foreigners at that time, Kaempfer’s version of the Ishikawa map remained the chief source of western knowledge of Japan, as it was successively plagiarized by French, Dutch, English and German mapmakers throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries. Some light wear, intersectional folds with occasional staining, a few minor repairs without loss, but generally in good, original condition.

About this Item: New York: GP Putnam & Company, 1856., 1856. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. Twelve leaves letterpress text. Ten lithographic prints: one tinted portrait of Perry from a daguerreotype by P. Haas; nine views by Heine (two of them chromolithographed, seven printed in two colors on india paper mounted); all printed by Sarony & Co. Folio. Original wrappers bound into 20th-century three- quarter maroon morocco and paper boards, titled in gilt on spine. Near fine. 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, probably the best lithographers in the United States at that time.

About this Item: GP Putnam & Company, New York, 1856. Folio. (20 1/4 x 14 1/4 inches). 12 ff. letterpress text. 10 lithographic prints (one tinted portrait of Perry on india paper mounted from a daguerreotype by P. Haas, nine hand finished views by Heine [two of these chromolithographed, seven printed in two colours on india paper mounted]), all printed by Sarony & Co. Expertly bound to style in half purple morocco over period purple cloth covered boards. 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 (though with some plates with several colors) on regular paper [as in the present copy] and a deluxe hand-coloured issue on card. 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.

About this Item: St. Petersburg: Naval Press, 1816, 1816. Quarto (262 × 196 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, label to spine. Spine rubbed, and professionally restored, corners renewed, first 15 leaves with some slight erosion at the fore-corner of the tail margin, but overall a very good copy. Nineteenth-century engraved bookplate of M.N. and N.M. Muraveyvikh, recording presentation by K.F. Muravyev, together with twentieth-century collector's plate of S.P. Fortinskii to the front pastedown. 4 folding copper-engraved maps and plans after Rikord, showing the ports of Edermo (modern Erimo) and Hakodate, with details of the special facilities built for the negotiations; and an aquatint portrait of Takadaya-Kahei. Bound without the half title as often. First edition of this primary source for an important sequence of events in the early history of Russo-Japanese relations, decidedly uncommon. It also relates to the continuation of the researches begun on the first Russian circumnavigation, 1803-1806, undertaken under the patronage of the Russian-American Company, and jointly commanded of Ivan Krusenstern (1770-1846) and Nikolay Rezanov (1764-1807). "In 1807 Golovnin was commissioned by the Russian government to survey the coasts of Kamchatka, the Russian American colonies and the Kuril Islands" (Howgego). The book describes in detail the rescue operation organised by Capt. Peter Rikord (1776-1855) aboard the Imperial Russian sloop Diana, to free Vasily Golovnin and his crew from Japanese internment in Hakodate. The Golovnin incident (1811-1813) had brought Russia and Japan to the brink of war. The dispute began in 1804 during Krusenstern's circumnavigation, one of the goals of which was the delivery of the first Russian embassy under Rezanov to Japan. Rezanov's mission was a failure, and Russian ships were strictly prohibited from Japanese territory again. By way of retribution, Rezanov sent two Russian-American Company ships to raid the Japanese territories of Southern Sakhalin, Kuril Islands and Hokkaido, robbing and burning settlements there, and capturing several Japanese. Although the captains involved were arrested as soon as they arrived to Okhotsk and sent to St. Petersburg for trial, the Japanese considered this an act of war, and relations deteriorated. In 1808-1811 the Russian sloop Diana under the command of Vasily Golovnin with Peter Rikord, as second-in-command, was dispatched as the second official Russian circumnavigation, tasked with the exploration and surveying of the Russian Far East, Kamchatka and Alaska. Golovnin was a "talented and educated naval officer who read extensively in the history of sea exploration and philosophy as well as the works of the philosophes"; he had served in the British Navy, seeing action under Nelson, and was "to serve as the model for the cosmopolitan, professionally trained naval offier for future generations" (Whittaker, p.113). On his return from Russian America in 1810, Golovnin began charting the Kuril Islands, and during his short landfall on the island of Kunashir, he, along with two of his officers and four crewmen were taken prisoner, transported to Hokkaido and kept in prison there, near the town of Matsumae, for over two years. A peaceful solution to the conflict became possible only as a result of the friendly relationship between Peter Rikord, who organised and led three rescue missions, and the prominent Japanese businessman and public figure Takadaya Kahei (1769-1827). Kahei was captured by Rikord with his ship the Kanze-maru, and stayed in Russia for several months where he learned Russian, and upon returning home convinced the Japanese government that the Russians should be trusted. The Russian sailors were subsequently released from incarceration, the first to that point to ever have returned from Japanese captivity. This work offers an informal, yet informative personal narreative of Golovnin's capture and rescue. Golovnin later wrote a popular account of the experiences; both accounts being translated for.

About this Item: Julius Bien, New York, 1861. Twelve color lithographs, partially handcolored, laid in. Quarto. Publisher's original embossed cloth, gilt. Minor edge wear, spine ends repaired. Light wear, occasional fox mark to plates. Very good. An exceedingly rare collection of fine American colored lithographs of Japanese figures, made by the preeminent American lithographer of the mid-19th century, Julius Bien. From the address on the imprint, 180 Broadway, we can confidently date the present lithographs between 1860 and 1862, as Bien was at that address for that short period of time, and almost certainly in 1860, since few new projects were begun once the Civil War began. Interestingly, this is also the time period during which Bien produced his best-known work, the 105-plate folio lithographic reproductions of Audubon's THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. Bien's concentrated efforts on Audubon may help account for the rarity of the present work. The plates here show Japanese men in various costumes, mostly soldiers in military uniforms, military vessels, military insignia, and more. It is no surprise that this book would have been produced on this subject around this time period. Interest in Japan and Japanese culture was sparked by the expeditions of Commodore Matthew Perry in the 1850s. And since the Perry expeditions to Japan were essentially American military endeavors, it is also no surprise that these early views of Japan are military in nature. The plates are titled, as follows: 1) "Officers of the 2nd Rank." 2) "Two Grandees of Japan." 3) "Japanese Officer." 4) "War Boat." 5) "Japanese Peasant." 6) "Japanese Performing the 'Ko-Tow.'" 7) "Hats and Various Insignias of Rank." 8) "Merchant Vessel." 9) "Japanese Boatman." 10) "Japanese Dressed in Chain Armer." 11) "Standards Carried by Various War Boats & Socks and Sandals of the Lower Class." 12) "2 Officers Saluting Each Other." The only mention of this work we found comes from the rare book auction company Merwin Clayton, who called this work "Rare" in their catalog of the James A. Nexsen Library in May of 1912. We could find no other mentions of this work in the usual sources on Bien and 19th- century American lithography, and no copies in OCLC. In twenty years of intensively collecting American color plate books, and forming the largest collection of them every put together, i never heard of this book. An attractive and important 19th-century American color plate book of supreme rarity. Seller Inventory # WRCAM54237

Two finely illustrated orihon (or folded books,: INATOMI MARKSMANSHIP ORIHON

About this Item: European matchlock muskets ("hinawaju") were introduced into the island of Tanegashima, Japan, in 1543 by Portuguese traders. The Inatomi school of gunnery ("Inatomi ryu"), founded in the latter part of that century, was one of the leading schools of marksmanship in early Japan, employing "hinawaju." These two finely illustrated manuscripts depict techniques of marksmanship. In the first volume each of the eight images (of nine, the first is lacking) depicts a musketeer in different positions, with targets in the distance. The musketeers are finely drawn in black ink with flesh-colored wash, and the muskets are painted in brown, gold, and silver. The musketeers are all depicted nearly naked (but they are wearing the most gorgeous loincloths made of rich colors including gold and silver in different patterns) in order to reveal correct body positioning. Each scene is titled according to the body position; the bodies of the musketeers are surrounded by notes pointing to proper positioning of each body part. There are measurements, comments regarding whether the musketeer is short or tall, how to hold the gun and squeeze the trigger, which part of the body should be tense or relaxed, how to place the barrel on a rest or foot to increase accuracy, etc. Some of the targets are conventional paper targets with bull's eyes and some are very beautifully drawn birds in the water. The second volume is concerned with problems of ballistics and marksmanship. There are three kinds of targets: paper with bull's eyes, highly decorative fans (painted in rich colors including gold, silver, red, green, white, blue, and brown), and humans (each wearing different loincloths of richly colored fabrics). The copious notes, written in one fine calligraphic hand, deal with the length of barrel, size of bullet, wind and weather conditions, shooting uphill and downhill, distance to target, etc. At the end of this volume, there is a postscript where we learn that in 1607 Iganyudo Ichimu Inatomi, the founder of the Inatomi ryu, gave the secrets contained in these manuscripts. The information must be kept secret. The first volume has some traces of dampstaining on several leaves, causing minor discoloration in blank portion of the leaves. The final leaf of the second volume, where the text regarding who owned these manuscripts, has suffered from some scrapping away. A date has been eradicated along with the names of the owner and recipient of the manuscripts. The kao and the red circle seal, while suffering some scrapping, are largely intact.
