FIRST & ONLY RARE EDITION In the 18th and 19th centuries many Japanese junks were driven by storms and currents to the California coast. Under punishment of death by the Shogun, no Japanese were allowed to leave nor return back to Japan from about 1604 through 1867. This tale is an exception to that rule ! * JAPANESE TITLE: Kaigai Ibun, Ichimei, Amerika Shinwa. * The true and fascinating story of 13 Japanese castaways who were rescued in mid-ocean, then taken to Mexico and finally returned to Japan via Canton. The story was written by one of the castaways, Hatsutaro [no last name was held by him at that time, a common Japanese name feature] then published in Japan. Hatsutaro was a peasant from Awa, along with twelve other sailors were the crew aboard the Eiju Maru, a coastwise shipping vessel. They were blown out to sea in their disabled craft. The work is vividly illustrated with some 39 color pages [13 are double-page illustrations] in all. With charming and naive scenes of early Mexico, their homes, people, activities and native costumes. * This fascinating primary resource covers the tale of the story of castaways as written by Hatsutaro. They were all lost off the coast of Hyogo, Japan in 1841, the crew of 13 men sailed without rudder for some six months southeast to be rescued by a Spanish galleon returning from S. China, and then dropped off in Baja California, at San Jose del Cabo. They went to Mazatlan, and eventually boarded a ship bound for Canton, and then back to Nagasaki in 1854. A wonderfully brilliant work, full of excitement and the unusual. * There is a lovely double-page map in full color of the Pacific showing the route of the author, his visit to Lower [Baja] California and Mexico, and his return back to Japan. See Maekawa below for full English translation of the voyage. * COMPILER: A-Boku Shin-Wa compiled by Confucian minister Bunzo MAEKAWA and that was then translated by Zumwinkle, see citation below. * COLLATION: Vol. 1: 26 sheets, 2 sheets preface, 1-18 pages text 4 . sheets illustrations, 2 sheets maps.
