Book Description

This is a facsimile reprint of ten titles bound in four volumes.

Much scholarly work on Lafcadio Hearn, the most important figure in the cultural relationship between the West and Japan, has already been published. However, how he was actually regarded and accepted by contemporary Western society is still an underexplored area. To answer the needs of researchers attempting to address this question, Early Biographical Sources on Lafcadio Hearn brings together eight biographies by his contemporaries, together with two pamphlets from conferences which were organized to commemorate his contribution to the Western understanding of Japanese culture.
