LE JAPON Pittoresque. Paris: E. Plon et Companie, Imprimeurs-Èditeurs, 1879.
[III], 387 pp.: il.; 180 mm. Half cloth.
Maurice Dubard portrays in this work the Japan of 1870, a country that begins to open up to the outside world after 2 centuries of isolation. His passion encompasses both the ancient material culture of the Empire and the overflowing energy of Japanese youth. A great storyteller, Dubard oscillates between past and present in his contemporary travel diary of the rapprochement between Europe and Japan. Unusual.
