    More Information: Six Lithographs Portraits of Japanese Men and Women Encountered on Perry's Expedition to Japan. From Narrative of the Expedition of an American Squadron to the China Seas and Japan, Performed in the Years 1852, 1853, and 1854 Under the Command of Commodore M. C. Perry, United States Navy, by Order of the Government of the United States, Volume II, Washington: Beverly Tucker, Senate Printer, 1856. Six beautiful lithographs measuring 9 inches x 11.25 inches depicting scenes from Commodore Perry's naval expedition to Japan, 1852-54. Lovely portraits in oval borders of a Japanese priest, magistrate, prince, court interpreter, and two women. The paper has toned, especially at the edges but the illustrations remain mostly unaffected and in good condition. Once framed these illustrations would be an excellent addition to the décor of any home, office or school.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
