Western Books on China Citation:
This new online collection comprises a descriptive, annotated bibliography of 654 early Western books on Imperial China up to 1850, all to be found in the Library of the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. The collection is based on the book Western Books on China published up to 1850 by John Lust.
The material is of unique historical interest, containing scrutiny of China by Western societies. The material contains an abundance of observations. The books, in a variety of Western languages, testify to the formidable difficulties encountered by Westerners, who attempted to extend their own familiar historical, linguistic and religious perceptions to the Chinese context.

Japanese Prints: The Dutch in Nagasaki : Red-Haired BarbariansCitation:
From the 1630s to the middle of the nineteenth century, Japan was practically closed to foreigners. The only Westerners allowed to stay in Japan and engage in trade were the Dutch. They had to submit to very strict regulations, however, and were only allowed to live on Deshima, a small artificial island in Nagasaki harbor.
This is a digital exhibition of a collection of 40 Japanese woodblock prints published between 1800 and 1865, depicting Dutch traders in Nagasaki. Now extremely rare, at the time of their publication the prints were sold as souvenirs to Japanese who visited Nagasaki and perhaps hoped to catch a glimpse of these strange 'red-haired barbarians'.
These prints are documents of a unique episode in Dutch trading history, and represent an early period in the art of the Japanese woodcut. Above all the prints show the amazement with which the Japanese looked at Westerners. The Dutch are depicted as pale, ugly, red-haired barbarians with large noses. The ships the Dutch used and the exotic animals they brought caused much astonishment and admiration.
In 1804, a Russian envoy visited Nagasaki in an attempt to obtain trading rights. He failed, but was portrayed in prints. It was only in 1858 that the Russians, Americans, French, and English were granted the same rights as the Dutch. They settled in Yokohama, a fishing village close to Tokyo. Prints were also created of this settlement, some examples are shown.
A few prints in the collection of 40 have other subjects. These are also shown here. For further information, some books and links are suggested.http://www.iisg.nl/exhibitions/japaneseprints/index.html more Language: dut Dutch; Flemish, eng English
