About this title:

Synopsis:

  • The Humbert Collection, containing approximately 140 vintage photographs collected between 1863/64 in Japan, is an invaluable account of the Edo-to-Meiji period transition, which shaped the West's image of this insular nation
  • Contains some of the earliest photographs by Felice Beato and Shimooka Renjô
  • Infrared photographs - a new form of research undertaken by Tokyo University - allow us to read hitherto hidden metadata on the back of the prints


  • Photographs taken in Japan between the late Edo period and early Meiji periods found their way overseas, and played a major role in forming Westerners' image of Japan. Among these collections, the pictures gathered by the Swiss diplomat Aimé Humbert (1819-1900) in the 1860s were crucial in building lasting representations of the island nation: many of these, mainly collected in 1863/64 during a sojourn in Yokohama and Edo, were used as sources for the well-known and largely distributed engravings of his famous book Le Japon illustré, published in Paris in 1870.

    Belonging to the collection of the MEN, these beautiful and well-preserved photographs are published here for the first time. Presented by Japanese and Swiss scholars before the narrative backdrop of their acquisition and application by foreigners, they offer a striking view of a lost world.

Review: Packed with images and key information, Japan in Early Photographs should be an essential acquisition for any authoritative collection strong not just in Japanese arts, but in Japanese history.--Donovan's Literary Services

Book Description Neuchatel: MEN - Stuttgart: Arnoldsche, 2018. Gebundene Ausgabe. Condition: Wie neu. 291 Seiten, mit zahlreichen Abbildungen. Hardcoverband mit aufmontierter Titelillustration in neuwertigem Zustand. - Bis heute ist das Bild Japans im Westen durch Fotografien aus der späten Edo- und frühen Meiji-Zeit geprägt. Eine bedeutende Rolle in der Vermittlung der bis heute nachwirkenden Darstellung des Inselstaats spielte die Sammlung des Schweizer Diplomaten Aimé Humbert (1819 1900), die dieser bereits in den frühen 1860er-Jahren aufbaute. Viele der zumeist 1863/64 während eines Aufenthalts in Yokohama und Edo gesammelten Aufnahmen dienten als Vorlagen für die bekannten und weit verbreiteten Stiche in Humberts berühmter Publikation Le Japon illustré (publ. 1870 in Paris). Erstmals werden seine wunderschönen und hervorragend erhaltenen Fotografien aus dem Sammlungsbestand des MEN nun in einer Publikation veröffentlicht. Japanische und Schweizer Wissenschaftler präsentieren sie vor dem Hintergrund der Narrative ihres Erwerbs und ihrer Verwendung durch Ausländer. So bieten diese frühen Fotografien einen faszinierenden Blick auf eine untergegangene Welt. (Verlagsanzeige) Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1900. Seller Inventory # 68133
