Publisher is the "Koloniaal Museum in Haarlem".  This museum in Haarlem was the precursor of what later became the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam.
"In 1864 the Maatschappij ter Bevordering van Nijverheid (The Society for Industrial Promotion) decided that a start should be made with the compilation of objects for a future museum on Dutch overseas territories. Frederik van Eeden was commissioned to do this (the father of the writer). A collection was established in the attic of his house in Haarlem, a part of which can still be found in the Tropenmuseum.
Van Eeden collected objects from the Netherlands Indies from various sources and within no time they moved into the first floor of Paviljoen Welgelegen in Haarlem. The Colonial Museum finally opened its doors in 1871. 
In 1910 the Vereniging Koloniaal Instituut (Association of Colonial Institute) was founded and was responsible for finding a location for and the building of the new Colonial Institute and Colonial Museum in Amsterdam. In 1923 the building on the corner of Mauritskade and Linnaeusstraat was completed and the collections from Haarlem could be moved to Amsterdam. On 9 October 1926 Queen Wilhelmina officially opened the new Colonial Institute.
The aim and the name of the museum was changed in 1950. As from 1945 the museum had been shortly called the Indisch Museum (Indies Museum) until it was changed to the Tropenmuseum. The entire world of the tropics became the area of work of the institute that was now called the Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen (Royal Tropical Institute). As the collection had mainly consisted of objects from the (former) colonies many new objects had to be bought or exchanged with other museums.
As from the end of the 1990s the permanent exhibitions were reorganized. Objects once again became more important. The change in cultures and mutual influence are the main subjects of the museum. 
The exhibitions focus on various themes, from contemporary art to religious traditions and historic photographs. The museum regularly organizes guided tours, lectures, scavenger hunts and musical workshops."

JAPAN in early photographs Aimé Hubert Collection

JAPAN in early photographs Aimé Hubert Collection




Neuchatel museum of Ethnography

MAYOR, G. & TANI, A.(eds), JAPAN in early photographs. The Aimé Humbert Collection at the Museum of Ethnography, Neuchâtel,  Neuchâtel 2018. Hard cover 29,5 x 22,5 cm. 291 pages with 219 photographs and illustrations.
"Photographs taken in Japan between the late Edo and early Meiji periods that found their way overseas played a major role in forming Westerners’ image of Japan. Among these collections, the pictures gathered by the Swiss diplomat Aimé Humbert (1819–1900) in the 1860s were crucial in building lasting representations of the island nation: many of these, mainly collected in 1863/64 during a sojourn in Yokohama and Edo, were used as sources for the well-known and largely distributed engravings of his famous book Le Japon illustré, published in Paris in 1870. Belonging to the collection of the MEN, these beautiful and well-preserved photographs are published here for the first time. Presented by Japanese and Swiss scholars before the narrative backdrop of their acquisition and application by foreigners, they offer a striking view on a lost world."

"In March 1917, the Russian Tsar Nicholas II Romanov abdicated. A year and a half later his life and the lives of his family were cut short at the hands of the Bolsheviks. The details of the execution of the Romanovs may have remained in shadow forever had it not been for the investigative work carried out by Nikolai Sokolov, whose papers later formed the basis for a further probe by the Russian authorities after the collapse of the Soviet Union."

The Journey of

The Journey of "A good type"




Japan early photography

ODO,D., The Journey of "A good type", Cambridge(USA) 2015. Hard cover 26 x 22 cm. 125 pages with around 100 photographs.
"When Japan opened its doors to the West in the 1860s, delicately hand-tinted photographic prints of Japanese people and landscapes were among its earliest and most popular exports. Renowned European photographers Raimund von Stillfried and Felice Beato established studios in Japan in the 1860s; the work was soon taken up by their Japanese protégés and successors Uchida Kuichi, Kusakabe Kimbei, and others. Hundreds of these photographs, collected by travelers from the Boston area, were eventually donated to Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, where they were archived for their ethnographic content and as scientific evidence of an “exotic” culture.
In this elegant volume, visual anthropologist David Odo examines the Peabody’s collection of Japanese photographs and the ways in which such objects were produced, acquired, and circulated in the nineteenth century. His innovative study reveals the images’ shifting and contingent uses—from tourist souvenir to fine art print to anthropological “type” record—were framed by the desires and cultural preconceptions of makers and consumers alike. Understood as both images and objects, the prints embody complex issues of history, culture, representation, and exchange."
