Book by Montanus


Acquired: January 30, 2006
Acquired from: Japan

In 1669 the first edition of Montanus' "Japan Magazine" was published in Amsterdam. The illustrations are somewhat exaggerated but it did introduce 17th century Japan to the Dutch audience. An illustration of the Hirado Dutch Trading Post is also featured in the text.
