"Summer in Japan" Series, H.H. Bennett
William H. Metcalf Photographs

The sepia albumen print stereoviews that follow are from a 26 view series titled "Summer in Japan" published ca 1877 by H.H. Bennett of Kilbourn City, Wisconsin. The photographs were take by William H. Metcalf, an amateur photographer, during a trip to Japan in the summer of 1877. These early photographic images of Japan (stereograph or otherwise) published in the United States. For more information on the "Summer in Japan" series, click here.

While the images are the same, I have found the stereoviews with two different type captions at the bottom right. One type has the card number (no "No." however) followed immediately by the title. I call this Type A. The other type has the title with the card number (including "No.") at the far right. I call this Type B.

Wilhelm Burger Stereoviews & Photographs (Not Japan Only)

Wilhelm Burger (1844-1920), a professional photographer, accompanied the Austrian trade and diplomatic mission which traveled throughout the Far East in 1869~1870. Burger arrived in Japan with the mission in August/September of 1869 and stayed until March 1870 when he returned to Austria. The below stereoviews were made from photographs Burger took during that mission. For more information on these Wilhelm Burger stereoviews, click here. Very little information is avaialble on these stereoviews. I would date tham as ca 1874.

1886 - Pictorial Arts of Japan by Anderson

Anderson, William:
The Pictorial Arts of Japan. With A Brief Historical Sketch of The Associated Arts, and Some Remarks Upon The Pictorial Art Of the Chinese and Koreans, Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, (also Boston & New York, Houghton, Mifflin & Company), printed in London by Gilbert and Rivington, 1886, folio (29 x 41 cm), all edges gilt, 4 sections/volumes, blue/green gilt decorative cloth, eighty plates (with tissue guards with descriptive text) including 16 chromolithograph plates and 64 black and white plates (wood engravings and photogravures) as well as 146 black and white text illustrations, 276 pages of text. Each plate has a guard which is printed with a subdued line illustration on one side and descriptive text and illustrations on the reverse. The photogravures are on thick card stock paper with the image area recessed. Wood engravings are on thin card stock paper. The chromolithographs are on thick card stock paper and sometimes bear the inscription "Imp. Lemercier & Cie, Paris" or "Wilhelm Greve" of Berlin.

The set is divided into four parts and an index with continuous pagination throughout. Each part is separated by a section title which is not included in the pagination.

  • Part I - General History (pages 1-68)
  • Part II - General History Concluded & Applications of Pictorial Art (pages 69-139)
  • Part III - Applications Concluded, Technique & Characteristics (pages 140-205)
  • Part IV - Characteristics Concluded, Chinese Art & Korean Art (pages 206 - 270)
  • Index (pages 271-276).

Generally found bound in one volume. The rich variety of illustration media - chromolithographs (16 plates), photogravures and wood engravings - makes this a very attractive book. Unfortunately, frequently found with the 16 chromolithographs removed.

The four parts were also issued in an unbound loose (folio) format in folding cases (30 x 42 cm). The folding are green with decoration in black and red with lettering gilt on the front cover and gilt lettering on the spine. To see the folding case, click here. In this format the text pages are double fold. The section dividers are single sheet and the single sheet plates and plate guards are loose at the back. Also included in each part is a single sheet the table of contents. To see the table of contents pages for parts II-IV, click here.

  • 1886, Boston and New York, Houghton, Mifflin and Company, The Cambridge Press, Cambridge, 1st US edition. I have confirmed the US edition was issued unbound in loose folio format (see above).

Note 1b.
Bennett, Terry:
Photography in Japan 1853-1912, Singapore, Tokyo, Rutland, Vermont, Tuttle Publishing, 2006,  Terry Bennett, 4to (9 1/2 x 12 3/8 in - 24 x 31.3 cm), gold colored hard covers with white lettering on front and spine, illustrated dust jacket, numerous color reproductions, 320 pp. The definitive English language history of photography in Japan through the end of the Meiji era (1912). The book presents the photo-history of Japan from early photographic experiments and the recording of the first photographic images (1850s), to the establishment of studios by Westerners in newly opened Japan (1860s), to the emergence of major competition by Japanese photographs (1870s), to the decline of Western studios (1880s), to the domination by Japanese studios (1890s) and finally to the full control by Japanese studios (1900s). In this context, Terry Bennett discusses the key photographers and photographic entrepreneurs and presents an amazing amount of biographical information. Reproductions of stunning photographs, many in color, supplement the biographies of the key actors. The book contains reproductions of approximately 400 images (primarily photographs) and the publisher asserts that over 50% are published for the first time in this book. Here you will find biographies of the well know photographers as well the much lesser know individuals who played important roles in the development of photography in Japan. This book will, no doubt, become a cornerstone in the research/reference library of those interested in photography in Meiji era Japan. It is a companion book to "Old Japanese Photographs Collector's Data Guide" by Bennett which was also released in November 2006. That book provides a wealth of detailed information on specific Japanese souvenir albums and attributing photographs to key studios. That book also provides a vast amount of information on attributing Japan related stereoviews to photographs/publishers. These two books are indispensable companions. ISBN: 0804836337.

Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography:
The Advent of Photography in Japan, published jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo and the Hakodate Museum of Art, Hokkaido, 1997, 184 pages, soft covers in thick wraps (no hardcover issued), 4to (9 x 11 3/4 in). This book served as a guide for exhibits in Tokyo and Hakodate by the same title held in 1997. Bilingual text in English (some) and Japanese (all). All images that are reproduced in the book have Japanese and English descriptive titles. Most, but not all, of the text has an English version of the Japanese text. This book is an exceptional study of early photography in Japan. It is divided into three sections: 1) between the arrival of the camera obscura and the daguerreotype; 2) the arrival of photography in Japan; and finally 3) works during the 1860s-70s by three key artists/photographers (Renjo Shimooka, Kakoku Shima, and Matsusaburo Yokoyama). The book is beautifully printed and generously illustrated with 228 numbered and titled color images. Many of the numbers have sub-numbers so the total number of images is approximately 280+. Images include: daguerreotypes, albumen photographs, early cameras, photographic chemical kits, artwork pertaining to early photography, the camera obsucra and paintings to be viewed with a camera obscura. A excellent book containing seldom seen images. Perhaps one of the best illustrated and most comprehensive books on early Japanese photography.

Next Sebastian Dobson discusses the "Yokohama Shashin" (Yokohama photographs) trade. Discussed in this section are noted photographers such as Felice Beato, Baron Raimund von Stillfried-Ratenicz, Uchida Kuichi, Kusakabe Kimbei, Adolfo Farsari (Sargent, Farsari and Company), Tong Cheong, the Japan Photographic Association (Farsari & Kozaburo Tamamura partnership), David Welsh (Yokohama Photographic Company) and Kozaburo Tamamura.

Rosenberg, Gert:
Wilhelm Burger, Ein Welt-und Forschungsreisender mit der Kamera, 1844-1920, Wien and Munchen, Christian Brandstatter, German language, 1984, 4to, hardbound, illustrated dust jacket, 229 illustrations black and white duotone (halftone), 192 pp. Pages 44-177 contain plates reproducing W. Burger's photographs. Each plate contains one or more images and descriptive titles in German. The book contains 57 plates (pages 88-144) showing 64 different images taken by Burger while he was in Japan. The book contains numerous halftone text illustrations. Included in this book is the famous "Hinrichtungsplatz in Jedo" image showing the severed head of a criminal placed on public display. The book is an excellent resource for Burger's style of photography and composition of images. Burger arrived in Japan in September of 1869 with the Austria-Hungary diplomatic mission and stayed until March 1870 when he returned to Austria. During this short period he created a excellent portfolio of Japanese images. This book also contains images Burger took on the expedition prior to arrival in Japan as well as after. There are numerous images of Siam (Thailand) and China (including Hong Kong) and Vietnam as well as other examples of Burger's work. Wilhelm Burger was a noted official "Expedition Photographer." The major expeditions traced in this book are the K.K. Mission nach Ost-Asien und South America (Sept 1868-Mar 1870) which included stops in Gibraltar (Nov 1868), Singapore/Borneo (Apr 1869), Siam (April-May 1869), Vietnam (May 1869), China (Jun-Sep 1869), Japan (Nagasaki, Yokohama, Osaka, Kamakura, Tokio - 27 Sep 1869-Mar 1870) the Austro-Hungarian North Pole Expedition (Jun 1872-1874) and expeditions to Samothrace (1876) and Asia Minor (1881). Rosenberg notes that Burger produced a series of "Stereophotographhien" on his return to Europe from the Asian expedition (page 30). ISBN 3854471076.

The final section contains photographs of customs and costumes (plates 30 ~ 49). Above each numbered plate is the technical information on the photograph which includes the photographer where that has been determined.

Bennett, Terry:
Old Japan Catalogue, London, 12mo/large 8vo, paper wraps. Each catalogue carries a sequential number. The subtitles varied over the years and include "Antiquarian Books" (No. 6, 1983), "Photographers" (No. 8), "Photographs, Prints, Books, and Manuscripts" (No. 9) and "Old and Rare Photographs" (No. 33, 2005). The company has been in business since 1982 and publishes a catalogue approximately every year. The earliest catalogue I have seen is No. 6 (1983). Old Japan is the preeminent dealer in old Japanese photographs. Each catalogue generally presents 100+ choice items from the firm's stock. The items are well illustrated and presented with in depth discussion. In recent years the emphasis has been on albumen photographs (individually, in groups and in albums). Attribution of these images to particular photographers is complicated and the descriptions give very useful and important information in this regards. The catalogues are an invaluable reference resource for those interested in these items. The focus is on images from the 1860's through the first two decades of the 20th century. Material is presented in numbered lots. Most catalogues do not carry the price in the text. In that case the lot prices are provided by means of an insert or price on request on extremely rare items. Unfortunately, the inserts are often missing when catalogues are obtained in the after-market. Earlier catalogues do not carry dates in the text of the catalogue but it no doubt was included with the price insert. The Old Japan web site is here and I highly recommend it.

Morse Collection/Photography, Tokyo, Shogakukan, 4to (9 x 12 in), 1983, cloth, Japanese text, one page "Message" in English, illustrated dust jacket, 300 illustrations/figures with captions in Japanese and English, 211 pp. Numerous (14) contributing authors listed in addition to the editor. E.S. Morse arrived in Japan in June of 1877 and remained there for two years. Morse was a zoologist and his primary reason for going to Japan was the search for mollusks and brachiopods. While in Japan he amassed huge collections of shells and pottery. He also collected photographs and those are the subject of this collection housed in the Peabody Museum of Salem. In addition to his initial two year stay, Morse returned to Japan at least two more times for short visits. The photographs reproduced in this book span the period from the 1870s through the 1910s with the bulk dated to ca. 1880-1890. The images are primarily of Japanese engaged in the everyday activities. Very few of the images are of scenery or the sites normally visited by the tourist. When a photograph was hand colored, it is reproduced in color in the book. The book contains wonderful color reproductions of images from glass slides (lantern slides) and the majority of the images (color and black and white) appear to have be reproduced from that format. A strong focus of Morse's attention is people engaged in arts and crafts. Illustrative of this are two black and white photographs of weaving on Okinawa which are dated ca. 1900.
