Abstract: This book presents a newly discovered text of which only one copy has survived in the Dresden State Art Collections (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Münzkabinett). It was dedicated to the Duke of Saxony Johann Georg III. and published in 1686 as a private print under the title "Short explanation of the most prominent rarities in East India and the neighbouring kingdoms". The author Caspar Schamberger (1623-1706) had worked in Asia for twelve years as a surgeon on VOC ships and in Dutch trading posts. He is known as the "father" of the first fully-fledged Western-style medical school in Japan. His text describes fruits, plants, animals, ethnic groups, coins etc. from Persia to Japan including the Khoikhoi (Khoisan) in Southern Africa. This is one of the earliest Western accounts of these matters based on observations made during the late 1640s and 1650s. The extensive commentary (126 pages) gives an outline of Schamberger's life presenting numerous new information on his activities after his return to Leipzig in 1658. Schamberger's descriptions are analysed in detail within the context of similar accounts of nine contemporary German travellers: Caspar Schmalkalden, Zacharias Wagener, Heinrich Muche, Johann Wilhelm Vogel, Elias Hesse, Albrecht Herport, George Meister, Andreas Cleyer, Engelbert Kaempfer. Forty-six illustrations selected from Western and Japanese sources proviede the iconographic background. Read more

Abstract: During the first year of this project a text file was made of Engelbert Kaempfer's manuscript on Japan (British Library, Sloane Collection no. 3060). The structure of the manuscript and its features turned out to be more complex than previous publications had stated. Thus further investigations in London became necessary. Only a part of this manuscript was written by Kaempfer himself. Most pages show the handwritings of others who helped Kaempfer to copy his first drafts. Nevertheless numerous ambiguities, repetitions, incomplete sentences, incongruities and misspellings suggest that this was not a final version ready for the printing house. The same conclusion lies at hand when going through the graphic materials bound together in the ms volume 3060. Although we are able to reconstruct Kaempfer's intentions fairly well there remain uncertainties concerning the final form of the book he would have published, if he had been given a chance to do so. In comparison with the printed versions edited by Scheuchzer and Dohm Kaempfer's original manuscript shows a distinctive language of description. This manuscript is an excellent source for cases studies on intercultural perception. While deciphering the handwritings in the manuscript 3060 some observations on specific phenomena were published in three articles and parts of a book. The voluminous text of the manuscript itself together with more than 9000 footnotes is printed by the iudicium verlag in Germany. Furthermore a detailed discussion of the writing of this manuscript and related questions is published in a separate volume aiming at deepening the understanding of the manuscripts and its contents. As a byproduct of this project many biographic materials, a sample set of Kaempfer's handwriting and a bibliography of international studies on Kaempfer (the most comprehensive bibliography up to now) were published on the homepage of the investigator.
