The von Siebold Collection from Tokugawa, Japan: 2. certain features of the Collection

1976

Abstract

IN December 1867, fourteen months after the death of Dr. Philipp Franz von Siebold, his eldest son Alexander approached the British Museum about the sale of an extensive range of Japanese materials which his father had acquired during the extraordinary career described in the previous article. Negotiations went on for several months, but in July 1868 a purchase price of £1,100 was finally agreed on. Herein lies the origin of what we know as the von Siebold Collection.
