    Re: Manjiro's "Bowditch"

    Great question. To my knowledge I don't know if there are any surviving copies of it either. I'm actually going to Japan in 2 weeks to visit Manjiro's hometown. I'm hoping to speak with Hayato Sakurai, who interned at the NBWM a while back and created their exhibit on Manjiro and now works as an archivist. I'll let you know if he has some information.

    While I'm thinking of it, Ger Tysk (or anyone else), do you have any information on Nakahama John Manjiro's translation of Nathaniel Bowditch's "New American Practical Navigator"? I'm a fan of Manjiro's story, and, of course, interested in navigation. I have heard that none of the translations survive, but that could easily be wrong. Are there any portions that have survived? Any commentaries on it or reviews of it?
