Introduction by Chantal Edel. Translated by Linda Coverdale. In 1853, after 150 years in total isolation, Japan opened up to foreigners again. Among the early visitors were the three little known artists, photographers Felice Beato and Baron Raimund von Stillfried and the novelist Pierre Loti, [essays on all three are included in Edel's introduction]. Their work caused a sensation in Europe and gave birth to Western fascination and obsession with Japan. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
