AUTHOR

SUMMARY

The Dutch Director or "Opperhoofd" of Deshima was required to make an annual journey to the shogun's court in Edo (present-day Tokyo). Opperhoofd Jan Cock Blomhoff (1779-1853) made his first journey to Edo in 1818. In addition to the official diary he kept during this journey, Blomhoff also maintained correspondence with his wife Titia in Holland. This hitherto unpublished material is a major source of knowledge on Tokugawa Japan. It offers details about Blomhoff's travels and contains numerous references to the objects he acquired. Many of these pieces are reproduced in the book, along with other documents, such as maps. (See also the publication "Titia - The First Western Woman in Japan")Effert, F. R. is the author of 'Court Journey to the Shogun of Japan From a Private Account by Jan Cock Blomhoff' with ISBN 9789074822183 and ISBN 9074822185.
