These partially burned photographs from around 1863 are rare snippets of important patrimony. Bauduin was the first Dutchman to photograph in Japan. He portrayed the Japanese, and photographed their houses, villages, and surrounding landscapes. Antoon Bauduin also recorded his own life, and that of his brother, who was a merchant and consul in Japan. Bauduinís estate is held in part by the University of Nagasaki and by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
