‎"Hutchinson Francis Lieutenant Royal Marine Light Infantry"‎

‎"Journal recording his return from Japan to England via South Africa with original photographs."‎

‎"Japan South Africa at sea". 1864-66. "Small 4to journal containing 45 tipped-in original albumen photographs in very good condition including 15 carte-de-visites the rest approx. 5"" x 7""; of particular importance are photographs pertaining to the Kamakura Incident see below as well as topographical scenes from Japanese life and countryside each with ink manuscript captions; rebound in slightly later black morocco gilt-leterring gilt clasp with key binder's ticket of James Griffin Portsea; and recently rebacked. Four of the smaller photographs are of South Africa. This is clearly the second of two volumes the text containing only the return from Japan via Hong Kong Singapore and Cape Town but it is remarkable nonetheless for its early photographs of Japan among which are four 5"" x 7"" photographs of Yokohama; a 7"" x 4½"" portrait of Major Baldwin who was murdered in November 1864 by Shimadzu Seiji; a photograph of the murder site at Kamakura by Beato a photograph of the shire erected in their honor also by Beato a photograph of the severed head of Shimadzu after his execution and finally another Beato photograph of the severed head from a drawing by Charles Wirgman an artist and correspondent for the Illustrated London News illustrations for the Illustrated London News would often be derived from Beato's photographs; lastly a small photograph taken in September 1865 by Beato of the fort taken by force at Shimonoseki among others. Baldwin came to Japan and was stationed in Yokohama. For foreigners living in Yokohama Kamakura was a favorite day- trip site. On November 21 1864 he visited the Great Buddha together with his colleague Robert Nicholas Bird on horseback. On their way from the Great Buddha to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine after dining with the noted photographer Felix Beato they were attacked and killed by two local samurai with swords probably because the officers did not understand appropriate etiquette when encountering a samurai. One of the assailants was caught and executed. The other escaped but reported to the police a year later. He too was executed. These murders were among the key events rocking the foreign communities in Japan in the early tumultuous years following the opening of Japan. The journal itself appears to have been reassembled at a later date; at least 3 leaves are missing as well as one photograph - otherwise all photographs are present according to Hutchinson's index and the pagination is a bit out of whack. But the value of this unique item is clearly in the photographs. Edo period photographs of Japan are rather uncommon and the dating of these photographs is always a problem. Because of this photographs such as these in a dated journal which prima facie were taken in the Edo period are particularly important. The four pre-1866 Yokohama Fire photographs the Beato photographs of Kamakura murder site the shrine and Shimonoseki and the photograph of Baldwin and the executed Shimadzu are equally interesting. Apart from the Beato photographs the photographer is unknown. Also included are two watercolors by another Lieutenant Henry L. Norcock who served with Hutchinson on the Conqueror. There is also a 5-page detailed account of a typhoon encountered on the return voyage together with a half-page pencil drawing of the H.M.S. Conqueror in the middle of it and a full-page tracking chart of the Conqueror's path." unknown books‎
