Herinneringen aan Japan.Haarlem, heirs of Fran├žois Bohn, 1833. 8vo. Contemporary motted gold-tooled calf. Rebacked with new endpapers.
Alt-Japan-Katalog 422; Cordier, Japonica, col. 488; Tiele, Bibl. 318. First edition, in the original Dutch, of Hendrik Doeff's recollections of Japan. Doeff was chief factor of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in Dejima from 1803 to 1817. Well-versed in Japanese (he is known to have written Haiku), Doeff had a unique insight into Japanese culture, and his recollections are an important record of the Dutch-Japanese relations in a turbulent period, marked by English, Russian and French attempts to break the Dutch trade monopoly in Japan. Title-page restored, some spotting, neatly rebacked, as noted, overall in good condition.
