Sex and the floating world : erotic images in Japan, 1700-1820 by Timon Screech ( Book )
17 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sex and the Floating World offers and entirely new assessment of the genre of Japanese paintings and prints known as shunga. Shunga prints are unusual in that they are overtly about sex. The author takes us into the strange world of sexual fantasy in Edo-period Japan, investigating the tensions in class and gender experienced by those who made - and made use of - shunga."--BOOK JACKET
Secret memoirs of the shoguns Isaac Titsingh and Japan, 1779-1822 by Timon Screech ( )
16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Isaac Titsingh was intermittently head of the Japan factory (trading station) of the Dutch East India Company from 1779 to 1784. He was a career merchant, but unusual in having a classical education and training as a physician. His impact on Japan was enormous; but he left disappointed in the ability of the country to embrace change. After many years in Java, India and China, he came to London, then settled in Paris, where he devoted himself to compiling translations of prime Japanese texts. His is one of the most exciting anthologies of the period and reveals the almost unknown world of eighteenth-century Japan, discussing politics, history, poetry, and rituals. Titsingh's Illustrations of Japan appeared posthumously in 1820-1822 in English, French and Dutch. This fully annotated edition makes selections from the original English version available for the first time in nearly two centuries."--Jacket

The lens within the heart : the Western scientific gaze and popular imagery in later Edo Japan by Timon Screech ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It has long been assumed that Japan's closed country policy meant that the country was isolated from the influence of the outside, and in particular, the western world. However, this study of 18th century Japan, using sources wholly unstudied since their writing, reveals the profound influence that the introduction of western technology and scientific instruments including glass, lenses and mirrors, had on Japanese notions of sight, and how this change in perception was reflected most clearly in popular culture. Screech offers interpretations of 18th century thought through popular objects, and makes propositions which many scholars considered groundbreaking on the book's first publication in 1996. The conclusions reached here have yet to be substantially challenged."--BOOK JACKET
