        Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen der Oost-Indische Maetschappy in 't Vereendigde Nederland, aen de Kaisaren van Japan ...Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1669. Folio. With engraved frontispiece, title-page printed in red and black with woodcut decoration, 1 folding map with travel routes in Japan, 20 double-page and 4 larger folding engraved plates, 71 half-page engravings in the text. Contemporary vellum.

      Cordier, Japonica, col. 383; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 522. True first edition of Montanus's very detailed and thoroughly illustrated account of Japan, containing the first known printed images of the small island of Dejima, in Nagasaki harbour, the Japanese outpost of the VOC (Dutch East India Company), connected to the mainland by a bridge. The title-page notes that the book is based on the manuscripts and notes of the VOC delegations (to the Shogun), and that the illustrations were drawn in Japan. The folding map shows the sea route along the coast from Nagasaki to Osaka and the land route along the coast from Osaka to Yedo (Tokyo). The four folding views show profiles of the cities of Osaka, Miaco (Kyoto), Yedo and Kagoshima. Two views show erupting volcanoes and many show religious and other rituals, temples, torture and fighting, etc.The present first edition isn't mentioned by Tiele. As Isabella van Eeghen already pointed out in 1972, Tiele's entry 762 actually describes a reprint, published ca. 1681, some two years after Meurs's death. The quality of the plates of the reprint is generally rather poor in comparison with the present first edition. Some browning and a few faint waterstains, otherwise in very good condition. The binding also very well-preserved.

        Handschriftlicher Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak. 29 Briefe, 15 Karten, 1 Erzählung betitelt "Die Maus" 2 Wunschkarten mit 1 Holzschnitt und 1 Reproduktion, 1 Karte von Eva Kobinger.

      1942 - circa 1972. - Briefkorrespondenz meist gelocht. Der umfangreiche Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak stammt hauptsächlich aus der Zeit 1942 - 1947 und ist insofern interessant, da es um die in Berlin lagernden Bilder geht, sowie die Alltagsprobleme die durch den Krieg verursacht wurden. Hans Kobinger 1892 - 1974 zählt zu den Künstlern Oberösterreichs rund um die Künstlergruppe 'März' zu der auch Vilma Eckl, Alfred Kubin, Klemens Brosch u. a. gehörten. Seine Arbeiten, ganz der Heimat verschrieben, erzielen durchaus beachtliche Preise auf dem internationalen Kunstmarkt. Ferdinand Wessiak lebte in der Kriegszeit in Berlin, später dann in Großgmain bei Salzburg. Er war der Vertraute von Johannes Ude, der im Widerstand zu NS-Regime stand und im KZ gefoltert wurde, zuletzt rettete ihn der Einmarsch der Alliierten. Der Briefwechsel gibt ein anschauliches Bild auch des geistigen Widerstandes und der Freundschaft. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
