of complete lithograph

In this lithograph the Perry exploring party inspects a house with a Buddhist temple beside it. Notice the United States flag planted in front of the house with an armed guard standing beside it. This probably didn't happen again for almost 100 years. In the right foreground Heine, the expedition artist, is shown sketching the scene.

There are two types of this lithograph. I call this Type I. Type II has different lettering. For more information on the types, click here.

The titles/lettering read:

  • From nature by Heine. Figures by Brown
  • J. Queen delt (center, Type I only)
  • PS Duval & Co, Phila

Bottom edge (binding edge) is ragged.
