Detailed Listing - Part 4


Collected Manuscripts
Griffis was interested in original materials by his contemporaries for a variety of reasons: sometimes he was able to serve as an editor or intermediary between author and publisher; sometimes his expertise was called upon; and always his own research interests were rewarded by his study of works by Japanese associates and by other Westerners who worked in the field. This series reflects manuscripts gathered by Griffis which, falling into the last category, were retained by him and found their way into his papers. (More substantial manuscripts collected by Griffis not primarily for his own researches may be found in Group IV.) The materials appearing here fall largely into two groups: manuscripts dealing directly with Japanese or Far Eastern culture, history or personages, and materials gathered by Griffis in researching the careers of the yatoi or of other Westerners in the Far East.

Authors may be identified for some of these MSS, but the greater part of them cannot be attributed. The series has therefore been arranged alphabetically by title; or, when a title has been lacking, by interpolated title (subject). When the subject has been identifiable as a yatoi, the entry has been glossed.

Perry & Bent Journals
The Journals of Matthew Calbraith Perry and officers (these journals are not part of the Griffis Collection but are also held at the Alexander Library at Rutgers University and have been included because they relate so closely to the papers collected by Griffis).

Journals of M C Perry and Silas Bent
In addition to the Griffis Collection, Rutgers University Libraries contain further significant materials for the study of US-Japanese relations in the nineteenth & twentieth centuries.

Among the most significant are six manuscript journals relating to the momentous voyages of 1853-1854 which opened the ports of Shimoda and Hakodate for trade with US ships and ended Japan's policy of isolation. These include the official flag journal (kept by Flag Lieutenants John Contee and Silas Bent), Commodore Perry's Journal, two volumes of O H Perry's journal, Records of Official Conversations with Japanese Officers, and a Narrative of a Journey of Exploration into the Interior of the Great Loo-Choo Island.

1. Flag Journal
The official flag journal (July 1852-September 1854), recording the naval operations of Commodore Perry, is the work of two hands: earlier entries made by Flag Lieutenant John Contee; and from April 4, 1854, entries in the writing of Silas Bent (1821-1887), who became Commodore's Flag Lieutenant on that date. The journal describes Perry's negotiations with the Japanese towards the "treaty of amity and intercourse" between Japan and the US, signed March 31, 1854. One volume.
2. Commodore Matthew C Perry's Journal
This is volume number two of Perry's three personal journals which covered the entire mission. This volume covers Perry's first stay in Tokyo Bay (July 1853) and the succeeding months at Okinawa, Hong Kong, and China before returning to Japan in 1854. It is in a clerical hand (not Perry's), with revisions in a different script. Scholars think that all three volumes (and the Rutgers' clerk's copy) were an 1855 reconstruction done under Perry's direction. A later version of all three volumes was published in 1968 under the title, The Personal Journal of Commodore Matthew C Perry, edited by Roger Pineau. Volume two incorporates the above noted revisions, and several paragraphs have been added or cut; otherwise the wording is almost identical. One volume.
3 and 4. Lieutenant Oliver Hazard Perry's Journal
O H Perry (1825-1870) was the secretary and son of Commodore Perry. He joined the squadron at Hong Kong, where it was preparing for the mission. He kept this personal account, as all officers were required to do. He was constantly at his father's side, and his narrative is detailed and informative, particularly with regard to the discussions between Japanese Americans (February 13 - June 1, 1854). Two volumes.
5. Narrative of a journey of exploration into the interior of the Great Loo-Choo Island, etc.
The journal consists of nine reports to Commodore Perry by Bayard Taylor. In a clerical hand, signed June 13, 1853.
6. Record of Official Conversations with Japanese Officers.
Begins on February 13, 1854 in Jedo Bay, and finishes on May 22, 1854, at Hakoda. It appears that Oliver Hazard Perry took these notes. One Volume.
