Book/Printed Material Seating Arrangement for All Students at the Nagasaki Navy Officer Training School.
About this Item
- Seating Arrangement for All Students at the Nagasaki Navy Officer Training School.
- This document is the original roll of the students of the Navy Officer Training School in Nagasaki that was established in 1855 by the Edo bakufu (shogunate) for the purpose of introducing a European-style navy to Japan. It was staffed by Dutch naval instructors. The students studied mathematics, seamanship, ship construction, navigation, and weaponry. The school existed until 1859, when a naval training school opened at Tsukiji, close to Edo (present-day Tokyo), with Nagasaki graduates as instructors. The roll shown here contains a total of 41 names, including those of Matsumoto Ryôjun (1832-1907), who studied medicine with the Dutch and served as private doctor to the 14th shogun; Tokugawa Iemochi (1846-66); and Akamatsu Noriyoshi (1841-1920), one of the first Japanese students sent to Europe at the end of the Edo period to study Western ways. During the Meiji era Akamatsu became a vice admiral in the Japanese navy. The roll is dated as of 1857.
