Item description for The Private Correspondence of Isaac Titsingh, Volume 1 (1785-1811) (Japonica Neerlandica) by Frank Lequin...

Although educated in medicine and law, Isaac Titsingh (1745-1812) decided to enter the VOC as a 'Junior Merchant'. From 1779 to 1785 he was Director of the VOC in Japan, where he was detached to the island of Deshima, and he went to Calcutta, also as VOC Director, from 1785 - 92. He subsequently assumed the positions of 'Councillor Extraordinary' in Batavia and Ambassador to the Imperial Court in Peking (Beijing) in 1794-95. Titsingh owned the first extensive Japanological collection in Europe, and wrote a tri-lingual series of studies on Japan as such becoming the first Dutch Japanologist. This present publication on Titsingh in two volumes is in Dutch with an English introduction.

Volume I contains 215 letters written by Titsingh covering the years 1785-1811. Only nine of these letters have been published before.
