We are pleased to announce the publication of a new book on the Pitt Rivers Museum’s collections, specifically its important Japanese photographic collections. Please find summary details attached (PDF) and further information available via their blog site here:
The book has been published — in Japanese — by Yamakawa Shuppansha; it is titled Oxford Daigaku shozo: Bakumatsu Meiji no Nihon. It follows a presentation of my ongoing research at a Nissan Institute Seminar in December 2015.
