Photographic prints from an early 1880's US Naval expedition to the Far East were the subject of a recent exhibit, 'Of Power and Profit, American Seaman in East Asian Waters', at the Institute of East Asian Studies, Univ. of California, Berkeley.

High resolution scans have been made from a set of original glass plate negatives acquired several years ago by John Dowling.
The collection features the work of Asa Mattice, US Naval officer aboard the USS Juniata, showing scenes from China, Japan, Korea, India, Zanzibar, and Madagascar. Captions were based on research in primary sources including records at National Archives and in the journal of Dr. George W. Woods, ship's surgeon aboard the USS Juniata. Wood's original manuscripts reside at Washington State University and were published by the ISEA in 1984. The discovery of these rare images brings together the words of Dr. Woods and the photographs of his shipmate, Asa Mattice, for the first time in nearly 125 years.
Prints and reproduction rights are available on the website. Custom prints and high resolution images are available by contacting John Dowling at jdphoto@twcny.rr.com.
