MCLEOD, NICHOLAS (or (NORMAN):
Korea and the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, with Korean, Japanese and Israelitish Illustrations. Yokohama, Published for the Author partly at C. Levy and the Sei Shi Bunsha Co., 1879.
. Oblong 4to. Pp. (vi), 23 and twenty-three wood-engraved plates, one blank leaf. Seven of the plates are devoted to Korea. Original green silk brocade over card, lettered in gilt on upper cover, some holes to rear cover. Inner hinges strained and endpapers browned. First edition of an unusual work that deals with the controversial theory that Korean and Japanese people descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel. Previously McLeod had published two similar works about Japan titled "Epitome of the history of Japan" and "Illustrations to the Epitome". This work which is also devoted to Korea seems rarer. McLeod was a Scottish-born missionary who resided for many years in Japan and Korea where he "searched for the true Israelites". The plates are made by Japanese artists and include illustrations of Korean costumes and commodities, the Japanese Ambassador's house and a military station at Kokufu (governor's place) followed by different shrines in Japan; the Dragon temple of Miyajima; Ise Jingu, Miyazaki-jingu in Hiuga. Further there are plates depicting pottery found at Emperor Jimmu's grave, chariots, a sumo wrestler, samurai battles (including two of Ainos), etc. Some of the plates are lightly discoloured due to the paper quality. Only a few library copies recorded (Oxford, SOAS, Edinburgh and Munich). Ref: Parfitt, Tudor: "The Lost Tribes of Israel: The History of a Myth" (2003). T. Pak, Western Books on Korea, p. 184-7.BOUND TOGETHER WITH: Album. And Guide Book of Japan from Satsuporo in the North to Kagishima in the South. With Historical and Statistical Notes Compiled by N. Mcleod. Yokohama, Published for the Author at the Seishi Bunsha Co., 1879. Pp. (1), clns 21, (3) on six leaves, and fourteen wood-engraved plates. The guide is illustrated with many famous sights, temples, the fifty-three stations of the Tokaido, portraits of significant Japanese people, etc.
