Translated by Hirooka Haruki from an unknown text.

`Koronbasu Denki` [`Columbus`s Ship`s Log`],

Translated by Hirooka Haruki from an unknown text. Kumamoto:
Hirooka Haruki, Meiji 3 [1870]. Privately published. 16 p. 1 v.,
complete. First edition. An extremely rare translation of Christopher
Columbus`s ship`s log, with two woodblock prints of Columbus
himself. Interestingly, this book was published in Kyushu, near the
foreign enclave in Nagasaki, which is perhaps where the translator
found a book recording Columbus`s ship`s log (or maybe even
caught a glimpse of the real thing!). Original binding and title slip,
black mark to binding. Otherwise in remarkably clean condition,
and a clear and bright printing. Only one copy held by one library
in Japan, and no records in libraries abroad. Extremely scarce and
probably one of the earliest books on Christopher Columbus in
Japanese.
