First published in 1902, this volume emerged contemporaneously with the Anglo-Japanese Treaty and explored the nation of Britain’s newest allies from an American perspective. Anna Hartshorne took her readers from experiencing Japan as unreal to utterly normal. She provided a thorough traveller’s guide including the voyage and first impressions, major locations and Japan’s peoples, culture and history. This is presented in two volumes along with 50 illustrations.
