Images of Japan in Non-Japanese Sources

The Kaigai Nihon-zō Shūsei [Images of Japan in Non-Japanese Sources] brings together illustrations from travel journals and scholarly studies by non-Japanese written in the period from the late Tokugawa to the early Meiji era. These illustrations are valuable sources for understanding how people from other countries saw Japan after it was opened to international intercourse in the mid-nineteenth century. The first two volumes include a total of over 9,700 illustrations from books published beginning in 1854, when the Perry-led fleet revisited Edo Bay, through 1870 (volume 1), and from 1871 through 1877 (volume 2). Thereafter, the third volume covers illustrations in 1878–1880, followed by the fourth and the fifth volumes including illustrations in 1881–1885, and in 1886–1890 respectively.
