  • Historic Map | Ryukei Tajima Japanese Map of The World, 1840 | Historical Antique Vintage Decor Poster Wall Art | 16in x 24in

    An extraordinary Japanese woodblock map of the world dating to 1840 by Ryukei Tajima. A brief overview of this remarkable map reveals just how isolated Japan really was prior to the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1850. Though printed in 1840, the cartography exhibited suggests an early 17th century European perspective of the world. California is represented as an island, the mythical Terre Australis stretches across the southern latitudes, Australia is connected to both New Guinea and Terre Australis, and mysterious suggestive landmasses fill the Pacific. The text surrounding the map itself, as well as several smaller diagrams, describe a heliocentric theory of climate and show eclipses of the Sun and Moon from this perspective. Visually the whole is beautifully if vaguely drafted using a combination of European and Edo period Japanese mapping techniques. The map is presented in a European style double hemisphere projection and the cartography is wholly European in conception. However, the detail work and the style of the engraving itself is entirely that of Edo Japan. This is a traditional Japanese woodblock map engraving on rice paper with mountains are shown in low profile, rivers are represented as open waterways, and regions identified by title cartouches. A important acquis...

  • Nowherelands: An Atlas of Vanished Countries 1840-1975

    A refreshingly original history of the lost countries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, examined and illustrated with the countries’ postage stampsThese are the stories of fifty countries that once existed but have now have been erased from the map. Varying vastly in size and shape, location and longevity, they are united by one fact: all of them endured long enough to issue their own stamps.Some of their names, such as Biafra or New Brunswick, will be relatively familiar. Others, such as Labuan, Tannu Tuva, and Inini, are far less recognizable. But all of these lost nations have stories to tell, whether they were as short- lived as Eastern Karelia, which lasted only a few weeks during the Soviet– Finnish War of 1922, or as long- lasting as the Orange Free State, a Boer Republic that celebrated fifty years as an independent state in the late 1800s. Their broad spectrum reflects the entire history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with its ideologies, imperialism, waves of immigration, and conflicts both major and minor.The motifs and symbols chosen for stamps have always served as a form of national self- presentation, an expression of the aims and ambitions of the ruling authorities. Drawing on fiction and eye- witness accounts as well as historical sources...

  • Texas Furniture, Volume One: The Cabinetmakers and Their Work, 1840-1880, Revised edition (Focus on American History Series)

    The art of furniture making flourished in Texas during the mid-nineteenth century. To document this rich heritage of locally made furniture, Miss Ima Hogg, the well-known philanthropist and collector of American decorative arts, enlisted Lonn Taylor and David B. Warren to research early Texas Furniture and its makers. They spent more than a decade working with museums and private collectors throughout the state to examine and photograph representative examples. They also combed census records, newspapers, and archives for information about cabinetmakers. These efforts resulted in the 1975 publication of Texas Furniture, which quickly became the authoritative reference on this subject. Now updated with an expanded Index of Texas Cabinetmakers that includes information that has come to light since the original publication and corrects errors, Texas Furniture presents a catalog of more than two hundred pieces of furniture, each superbly photographed and accompanied by detailed descriptions of the piece’s maker, date, materials, measurements, history, and owner, as well as an analysis by the authors. The book also includes chapters on the material culture of nineteenth-century Texas and on the tools and techniques of nineteenth-century Texas cabinetmakers, with a special emphasis o...
