Subjects Lumber trade — Japan — History. Summary This concise volume surveys three hundred years in the history of the esrly industry in early modern Tokugawa Japan.
In earlier works, Conrad Totman examined environmental aspects of Japan’s early modern forest history; here he guides readers through the inner workings of lumber provision for urban construction, providing a wealth of detail on commercial and technological systems of provision while focusing on the convoluted commercial arrangements that moved timber from forest to city despite exceptionally severe environmental and financial obstacles.
Based on scrupulous scholarship in the vast Japanese secondary literature on forest history, The Lumber Industry in Early Modern Japan brings to light materials previously unavailable in English and synthesizes these within a thoughtful ecological framework.
