Amazon.com description: Product Description:

During the period of the Tokugawa shogunate’s seclusion policy from about 1630 onwards there was very little European contact with Japan, apart from the very restricted Dutch presence at Nagasaki. During this period, however, Russians exploring Siberia and the Russian Far East came into contact with Japan, and further exploration and information collecting was encouraged by the Russian government, culminating in the first official Russian Embassy to Japan in 1792. This book examines the Russian discourse on Japan in the period, tracing the gradual accumulation of knowledge, and the development of Russian views, sometimes distorted, about Japan. The book includes key historical documents, some translated into English for the first time. The book is a pre-quel to the author’s previous book, Russian Views of Japan, 1792-1913: An Anthology of Early Travel Writing (Routledge, 2004).
