De Tempel Kiomidsu. XXXIV. Tafel. (1729) Japan
 Copper Engraving of Japan by (Kaempfer, Engelbert, 1651-1716) ; (Scheuchzer, John Gaspar/ Scheuchzer, Johann Caspar, 1702-1729). Published by Gravenhage : P. Gosse en J. Neaulme; Amsterdam: B. Lakeman. Engelbert Kaempfer, German physician and naturalist, known for his tour of Persia, Indonesia, and Japan between 1683 and 1693, German physician and traveller, Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716) spent ten years, 1683-1693, traveling through Persia and Southeast Asia, including two+ years in Japan, 1690-92. Residing in Nagasaki where he arrived in September, 1690 and departed in November, 1692. He made two three-month trips to Edo (Tokyo) and had audiences with Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi. His illustrated accounts of his travels and observations are the most detailed Western descriptions of 17th century Japan, and his trips within Japan were the basis of the most accurate Western maps of the interior for the next 150 years. In 1692, Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716) physician with the Dutch East India Company, smuggled out of Japan the first systematic collection of Japanese materials to be seen in Europe. Kaempfer's collection became the basis of the West's earliest scientific account of the closed island empire. Sir Hans Sloane, a founder of the British Museum, purchased Kaempfer’s library and papers from his nephew between 1723-5. He then arranged for Kaempfer's German manuscript to be published in English. This was undertaken at Sloane's expense by his librarian, a Swiss doctor called Johann Caspar Scheuchzer (1702-29).The publication of the History of Japan in 1727 immortalised Kaempfer as 'the first interpreter of Japan'. It contains descriptions of acupuncture, the use of opium and cannabis and a systematic description of tea, as well as extensive botanical observations. It was praised by Linnaeus, who adopted Kaempfer's nomenclature. Luis Borges was fascinated by Kaempfer’s work and frequently referred to it in his fiction. Kaempfer wrote this monumental work in his native language, German. It was first published in English in a translation from the author's manuscript in Sir Hans Sloane's collection (The History of Japan, London, 1727, 2 volumes).  Some copies of the 1727 publication contained an 1728 appendix entitled "Being Part of an Authentick Journal of a Voyage to Japan, made by the English in the year 1673?". This appendix deals with an abortive attempt by the British to revive trade with Japan. Mega rare £225 inc delivery folds as issued
