U.S. Japan Expedition in 1854, Japan, Art Digest, 255 pp, 18mo (4.25 x 5.75 in - 10.5 x 15 cm), soft cover with dust jacket. This book is almost all in Japanese except for captions to the print reproductions. It looks like it is a translation of parts of Volume 1 and 2 of the Narrative. The interesting and predominant feature of this book is that it reproduces, in color, all the lithographs and engravings from Volume 1 and Volume 2 except those that do not relate to Japan or Lew Chew (Okinawa). The treaty is also reproduced. Most of the horizontal format lithographs and engravings span 2 pages. The nature lithographs and engravings of animals, fish, birds, and shells are present. In total there are 91 items reproduced. Each plate has the English caption from the narrative.

ISBN: 4-7636-1586-6 C0171
