We present the work of reduction and inclusion of the Brashear Plate Catalogues in the Wide-Field Plate Database (WFPDB). About 5000 plates were obtained with the Brashear astrograph of the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory located in Mitaka in the period 1943-1962. The astrograph was equipped with two cameras: 16 cm Zeiss Tessar and 20 cm Petzval Triplet. The observing programme included mostly asteroids and comets. We divided the Brashear plates in two catalogues accordingly the both used cameras, to which were assigned the following WFPDB identifiers respectively TOK016 and TOK020. Analysis of the catalogues using the available data is present. Comparison of the original catalogues with the files obtained from the scanned in table form catalogues and following image processing is present too.
