        [TREATIES WITH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; GREAT BRITAIN; FRANCE; NETHERLANDS; RUSSIA]

      [N.p., 1859. Five volumes. In Japanese. Original stiff wrappers, stitched, paper label on front covers. Light soiling. Minor worming to three volumes. Very good. A complete five-volume set, printed in woodblock, of the Ansei treaties, the first Japanese treaties of Amity and Commerce and Trade Taxes with Japan's five principal overseas powers. The treaties were formal trade agreements and tariffs concluded between July 29 and October 9, 1858, after long and involved negotiations with the various contingents from Europe and America. Such sets were distributed internally in Japan to port and trade officials. The first of these five treaties, also called the Harris Treaty, was signed between Japan and the United States, with the other four countries following suit over the next three months. Japan was obliged to apply the conditions in the American treaty to the other four powers under the "most favored nation" provision, but did not extend the privilege to the Japanese. The treaties also contained provisions for extraterritoriality and denied the Japanese to set their own tariff rates. For these reasons, the Ansei treaties, and others signed between western countries and China & Japan in the 19th century, have come to be known as "unequal treaties." Michael R. Auslin, in his study of the unequal treaties, NEGOTIATING WITH IMPERIALISM: THE UNEQUAL TREATIES AND THE CULTURE OF JAPANESE DIPLOMACY, contextualizes the inherent troubles the treaties caused between Japan and the West: "Although idealized by Japan and Western nations alike as inviolate, the 1858 Ansei treaties were far from being sacrosanct legal documents; rather, they proved to be a field of battle between the signatories. Over the years, a distinct Japanese diplomatic approach emerged: the desire to preserve the bafuku's traditional diplomatic culture meant that the treaties were considered fluid documents subordinate to the actual relationship; for Western powers, however, the treaties were prior to relations, creating and guiding them. Treaty relations as a whole, therefore encompassed both contestation and accommodation. Though the Japanese held goals often antithetical to the Westerners, they dared not violate the treaties directly. Both the Tokugawa government and its successor Meiji regime thus worked to maintain the dialogue of treaty relations. The Japanese reacted in this way because they realized that they had entered a relationship unlike any they had encountered before." It was Commodore Perry's actions in 1853-54 that brought about the opening up of Japan and allowed a form of gunboat diplomacy to be played out in the aftermath of Perry's mission. Throughout the early 19th century, Russia, Great Britain, and France had tried to set up a trade deal with Japan, only to be shut out. The Dutch had sole trading rights with Japan established for 200 years through Nagasaki, but the increased trade with China from the late 18th century encouraged other European powers to push into the Japanese domain. Perry's bold move to sail into Edo Bay with letters from the president to the emperor forced the Japanese to face the issues of commerce in an inwardly-looking country. In effect Perry broke down the door, but every nation got a similar deal and Yokohama was set up as an international trading post for foreigners. This increase in western commerce in effect brought down the old order of the rule by the late Tokugawa Shogunate, based on the samurai clans. They were removed from power in 1868, and the Meiji Emperor was restored as head of state, bringing with him a complete change of policy towards the West, and a rapid urbanization and industrialization that moved Japan, at great speed, toward becoming the greatest power in late 19th-century Asia, and set in motion the military events of the 20th century. A rare set of important treaties, the first to open Japan to international trade and commerce. Michael R. Auslin, NEGOTIATING WITH IMPERIALISM: THE UNEQUAL TREATIES AND THE CULTURE OF JAPANESE DIPLOMACY (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2004), p.17.

        The Voyage of the 'Fox' in the Arctic Seas. A Narrative of the Discovery of the Fate of Sir John Franklin and His Companions.

      London: John Murray, 1859. Octavo, with four maps (three folding), folding facsimile of record found of Franklin's Expedition, larger folding map in rear pocket of the binding; 14 wood engraved illustrations; original gilt decorated blue cloth. First edition: the discovery of the fate of John Franklin's final expedition. Jane Franklin, unrelenting in her determined activism, was largely responsible for the long series of expeditions to discover the fate of her husband's 1845 expedition to the Arctic on the Erebus and Terror. "By means of sponsorship, use of influence and by offering sizeable rewards for information about him, she instigated or supported many other searches. Her efforts made the expedition's fate one of the most vexed questions of the decade." Single-mindedly pursuing her objective to establish the truth she personally sponsored seven of the numerous searching expeditions, including McClintock's, which would prove to be the most significant when it finally brought back proof of the expedition's end.The search to determine the fate of Franklin's expedition was one of the most extensive in maritime history. In all, twenty-nine separate expeditions were mounted up to and including McClintock's, which was almost entirely funded by Jane Franklin. McClintock, who had served with Ross in the Arctic, succeeded where the others had failed and discovered numerous skeletons and relics from the ships. Most importantly he discovered the only written record of the expedition: an official form, completed by the doomed men, describing the death of Franklin and the loss of ships. McClintock was able to complete the story from the eyewitness accounts of native Inuit people.Sponsor of the expedition, Jane Franklin was also the book's dedicatee ("For you it was originally written, and to please you it now appears in print..."). Her involvement with McClintock, discoverer of her husband's fate, was both poignant, and long-lasting: at her death decades later, in 1875, he would be one of the "Old Arctics" who carried her coffin. The Franklins' connection with Australia is strong: John Franklin was Matthew Flinders' cousin, and had begun his distinguished naval career as a midshipman on the Investigator, subsequently staying on in Sydney working as an assistant in the small observatory which Flinders had established. After two polar expeditions, and many other noteworthy exploits, he was appointed lieutenant-governor of Van Diemen's Land, a post he held with great distinction for seven years from 1837. "Lady Franklin at once began to take an interest in the colony and did a good deal of exploring along the southern and western coast. In 1839, she became the first European woman to travel overland between Port Phillip and Sydney. In April that year, Lady Franklin visited the new settlement at Melbourne, where she received an address signed by 63 of the leading citizens which referred to her "character for kindness, benevolence and charity". With her husband, she encouraged the founding of secondary schools for both boys and girls, including Christ's College. In 1841, she visited South Australia and persuaded the governor, Colonel George Gawler, to set aside some ground overlooking Spencer Gulf for a monument to Matthew Flinders. This was set up later in the year. In 1842, she and her attendant, Christiana Stewart, were the first European women to travel overland from Hobart to Macquarie Harbour".In 1842, she commissioned the remarkable classical temple, "Ancanthe" ('blooming valley') as a museum for Hobart, leaving 400 acres in trust to endow it. After long neglect it is used today as the Lady Franklin Gallery.The Franklins were so well regarded in Van Diemen's Land that, when news arrived in 1852 that Jane Franklin was organising the search expedition in the Isabel, initial Tasmanian donations alone amounted to more than £1600. Provenance: Convent of Our Lady of Mercy Melbourne (with bookplate); collection of Robert Edwards AO. In fine condition.

        A WREATH FROM THE WOODS OF CAROLINA. Illustrated with Colored Engravings of Native Wild Flowers

Bright, some moderate chipping to the spine cloth, most plates are lightly to moderately foxed, a few more heavily. The foxing seems, to have occurred because of the tissue guards. The book is tight but the binding was very prone to being shaken and this copy is very slightly so. Still, A Very Good copy.*** This is considered the first children's book written by a North Carolinian. It comes in at least two bindings, this being brown with elaborate gilt decoration. The other is blue with only the cover title in gilt and with no gilt edging. This has become a very difficult book to find, especially in this deluxe binding.*** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Twelve Messages from the Spirit of John Quincy Adams, Through Joseph D. Stiles, Medium, to Josiah Brigham.

      Bela Marsh 1859 - Boston, 1859. 8vo, publisher's brown cloth, 459 pp. A very scarce American spiritualist title. Though this book has been cited by several authors studying nineteenth century American spiritualism, there are no publicly held copies currently in OCLC. Per the Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology: "American printer who, in the early days of Spiritualism, received through automatic writing remarkable prophecies of the impending Civil War. The story was published under the title Twelve Messages from John Quincy Adams through Joseph D. Stiles in 1859 by Josiah Brigham. The author had met Stiles in June 1854. The messages were written by Stiles in trance from August 1854 until March 1858. They came in John Quincy Adams's handwriting and under his signature. Stiles also produced other remarkable autographs.

        Chechnya and the Chechens].

      Tiflis 1859 - 8vo. (20.8 x 14.2 cm). VIII, 140 pp., with a folding lithographed map of Chechnya; small abrasion holes in inner margin of pp. 1-2 not affecting text, occasional underlines in text. Recent full green calf gilt, flat spine gilt. Very rare description of Chechnya detailing its geography and complex ethic composition. The author also looks at the customs and traditions of the Chechens, the structure of their society, folklore, and their justice system, which is based on Sharia law. The text is accompanied by a large folding map of the region. The year this book was published was something of a turning point for Chechnya; in 1859 the Russian Empire succeeded in capturing Imam Shamil, a leader of Chechnya's anti-Russian resistance and the third Imam of the Caucasian Imamate. This essentially ended the war in the Northern Caucasus and allowed the Russian Empire to establish control over the region. Adolph Bergé (1828 – 1886) was an Imperial Russian bureaucrat and an Orientalist, with principal interests in the history and culture of the Caucasus. A St. Petersburg native, Bergé's father was from France and his mother was from Germany. Trained in Oriental Studies at St. Petersburg University, Bergé was dispatched to the chancellery of the Viceroy of the Caucasus, Prince Mikhail Vorontsov, in 1851. He also made two scholarly trips to Persia in 1853 and 1855. From 1864 to his death, Bergé chaired the Tiflis-based Caucasian Archaeographical Commission. Rare. Absent from the collections of NYPL, Library of Congress, Yale and Stanford University libraries and the British Library. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
