Instrumental observations from Dejima (Nagasaki), Japan, taken under the responsibility of the Dutch, covering the periods 1819-28, 1845-58, and 1871-78, have been recovered. The Dejima series overlaps by six months the modern Nagasaki Observatory series, which covers 1878-present. The recovered data extend the start of the instrumental Japanese series back from 1872 to 1819, leaving major gaps during 1829-44 and 1859-71.
